if you really want to know if it’s over, that you’ve really lost them…. it’s in the silence.
At least when they’re throwing curses at you like it’s nature and screaming how much they hate you, you know some part of them still cares.
Some part of them still cares enough to feel something for you, even if it’s love twisted into hate.
But when they stop yelling and they lose the fire in their eyes, you’ve lost them.
When it goes quiet they’ve given up. They’ve gone.
