"The Spaces Between"

An excerpt:
' It hurts
when love dies.
When love is deep,
it hurts deeply---
more deeply maybe than you thought
anything would ever hurt
again.

But with time,
the spaces between the moments when it hurts
gets longer,
the moments themselves become
less devastating,
till eventually you come to associate them
with a sad sweetness
that has as much in common
with love
as it does with grief.

I wish you long
spaces in between,
