more than just a person when they leave.
Parks, coffee shops, songs, all the favorite foods you used to
eat; look old birthday gifts and t-shirts in the face to tell
them that it's over; move around furniture, buy new bed
sheets, stop visiting the places that make your stomach spin as
quick as rides at the carnival (now you're thinking about
the carnival you went to on your third date — now you
have to change your metaphors). You don't just break up
with a person, you let go of every second you spent wherever
and however you spent it as you made the mistake of letting
yourself fall in love with them.
