when I think about it
#it had to come out
The most heartbreaking thing he actually did to me wasn’t the break-up or the cowardness or the pityless ignorance or walking by without giving me a look, the most heartbreaking thing was the very night I happened to learn he was actually leaving one week after and that I would have to spend august alone. I was devastated and then came my anger so I protested and I told him to fight against constraint and college and stuff and he said with this broken voice that he knew I didn’t like this side of him and that I had already defined him. Like I was imprisoning him in my own picture of him. So I calmed the fuck down and started actually asking. About him. Though he was not able to answer (and he has never been), he said that it might come out later and we stopped fighting, we were just sad and (for my part at least), in love. After the break-up, his ex wrote me a novel-like message to tell me horrible things about us, and at some point she wrote “P. can’t love’, and said I could never make him change anyway. And this was defining him in the cruellest and saddest way you could ever think of.
Denying someone the capacity to love.
So I will not define him. Though we will probably never talk to each other again, which is the most terrific bitter end ever, I will never define him. I will be the one who asks questions.

All that remains in place of a relationship gone sour is a collection of hurt feelings and angry text messages.
Things you couldn’t have said in person. Things you probably shouldn’t have said from behind a keyboard.
T(ex)ting is a series that explores how the termination of a relationship interrupts routine, and how technology’s capacity to convert the emotional to the tangible (in the form of archived text messages) can prolong the healing process that follows a break-up.
