This book is as much an emotional journey as it is a story about love. Written almost as a stream-of-consciousness narrative, we get an intimate and thorough look into Taryn's tormented inner life. We are privy to how she makes her decisions, often t ...more

“Empty Spaces

I wanted to feel less.
To not be burdened by emotion,
To not feel sadness,
To not know loss.
I envied the inanimate,
The trees that stand proudly in winter,
Not missing their leaves.
I wanted to be weightless,
To not experience limitation.
I didn’t want time to pass,
The blur of days, months, years.
It moved too quickly,
I wanted to grasp on,
Hold it.
It eluded me,
Intangible,
Like light.
I wanted to preserve life before you were gone.
I didn’t want to know grief.

But the pain kept me connected.
It meant that I loved you,
It meant that I would always be a little broken,
It meant that our love filled all of the empty spaces.
It meant that you would be with me... forever.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“His absence was a presence.
Who knew an empty space could take up so much room.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“Never again, would I use someone's
approval as a thermometer for
my self-worth.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“He was footprints in the snow.

Not all loves are meant to last.
Some are meant to grace you briefly,
before fading,
somehow leaving the impression
that the world is just a little bit better
because you had been touched by
something so beautiful it was impossible
to grasp.”
Jacqueline Simon Gunn

“Her thoughts were like the moon eclipsing the sun.”
