Void II

I spent yesterday sorting through comments left on MySpace over the course of three years. 92 comments, and probably half of them that contained some permutation of ‘I love you’. I find myself thinking of Warren Zevon’s ‘Keep Me In Your Heart For Awhile’

‘If I leave you, it doesn’t mean I love you any less’

Heck, the whole song is pertinent and powerful for those of us dealing with a loss.

Whilst looking through those comments, I couldn’t escape the feeling that I probably ought to deal with the emails soon, having done those. One hundred and eighty something remain for me to preserve for the times when I have a longing to read something from her. I’m wondering whether I also ought to preserve YouTube stuff, or whether that’s just obsessive. I suppose, in her absence, the things she sent take on more importance…although they are already important.
