My dear friends, I must thank you so much for your comments on my last entry. I realize that I must thank you so often that it seems insincere, but your kindness and concern has meant so much to me throughout this strange and difficult time.
I took your advice, and went to visit Romeo at the hospital. He seemed to be doing fine and also appeared very glad to see me. We talked for a long while, mostly about this strange world and all of the nuances we had learned about. It was shockingly pleasant, actually.
Still, imagine how surprised I was this evening to turn to my computer and see that Romeo had unblocked me and left an apology on his blog! Finally, he is once more beginning to act like the Romeo I know and love–sorry, loved, I suppose. He still claims his love for this…Vanessa, which I suppose I cannot blame him for. I, too, know how love can crush a person in her steely grip, and refuse to let go. I, too, know what it is like to love so deeply that without them, you cannot feel whole. I, too, know.
