I think when it’s all over it just comes back in flashes, you know. It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories, but it just all comes back. But he never does. I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. It’s not really anything he said or anything he did. It was the feeling that came along with it. And, crazy thing is, I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again. But, I don’t know if I should. I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright, but I just thought, ‘how could the devil be pulling you towards someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?’ Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him. It was losing me.

“He” doesn’t have to be a guy or even an actual person. “He” can be the thing that brings you down. The thing that looks and feels great, but is poison. “He” is the dangerous thing you can’t control.
Spoken from experience, “he” doesn’t have to win. And, there are other “him”s that can come along and turn it all back around.
