portland, maine

I’ve known him for 1254 days. We were together for 1213 days...we’ve been apart for 21 days.

He told me after 715 days that he was moving. He gave me 20 days notice. He’s been gone for 499 days. I have seen him for a total of 6 days in those 499 days.

We thought we could make it work. But after 478 days apart, it ended. We haven’t spoken for 4 days.

That’s how I count my time now. In days. Weeks are too long and months are unbearable. Maybe when I can start in years, he’ll just be a memory.

A 1254-and-counting day memory.
