Our stories were different, but our scars were the same. Those little cracks inside our minds that we hid from the world, the misery we were both trying so desperately to separate ourselves from, yet were so helplessly in love with. We understood each other in all the worst ways, all the darkest parts of us brought naked into light. Revealing our most shameful, painful secrets from beneath our carefully crafted layers — the most vulnerable, fundamental pieces of ourselves. And we may grow apart in time and space, might forget all we know about each other, but once you’ve truly known a person, that knowing stays with you. That person becomes a part of you. Can never leave you.
