ONE LONG LAST LOOK

 

“I had said goodbye to her once before, but it took everything
I had to say goodbye to her then, again, for the last time,
like poor Orpheus turning for a last backward glance at the ghost
of his only love and in the same heartbeat losing her forever:
hinc illae lacrimae, hence those tears.”

 

~ Donna Tartt ~
