A Gypsy’s Tale: The Fall

                           And you’ll always love me won’t you?
                          Yes. 
                          And the rain won’t make any difference? 
                          No.
                                            ~ Ernest Hemingway

Do you wish sometimes you had never met me?

No. I wish you had never left me. 

I had to… you would have never left me.
