Alas

"I was thinking about C's boyfriend, who had asked her, in light of his own mother's recent death, why everyone he loved left him. And I realized that that is, in a way, the whole fucking point. The ratio of work put into love to happiness yielded is pretty horrible, but yet you do it anyway, you love passionately and completely, because you know it won't last, because you know that the people you love are going to leave you. If you didn't know it would end, what would be the point? And so I will love unabashedly and fully, and I'll leave people and I'll be left, and it will all be worth it."
