Gil: Were you scared?
Ernest Hemingway: Of what?
Gil: Of getting killed.
Ernest Hemingway: You'll never write well if you fear dying. Do you?
Gil: Yeah, I do. I'd say probably, might be my greatest fear actually.
Ernest Hemingway: It's something all men before you have done, all men will do.
Gil: I know, I know.
Ernest Hemingway: Have you ever made love to a truly great woman?
Gil: Actually, my fiancé is pretty sexy.
Ernest Hemingway: And when you make love to her you feel true and beautiful passion. And you for at least that moment lose your fear of death.
Gil: No, that doesn't happen.
Ernest Hemingway: I believe that love that is true and real creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving, or not loving well, which is the same thing. And when the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face like some rhino hunters I know, or Belmonte, who's truly brave. It is because they love with sufficient passion to push death out of their minds, until the return that it does to all men. And then you must make really good love again. Think about it.

i tried to forget you exist

and it worked

and worked through this and that

and through that and this

until one day i saw a picture of you

that i didnt take

then when i was alone

i heard a song that i had only ever heard with you

i tried to shake it

then i found something you had written

that i had never read

and was reminded of all the moments

that i never even saw

then i started to feel feelings

that i never had to feel

because i always had you

then i dreamed about your sadness

that i had never had to see

because i was trying to forget you existed

and it worked

until i saw another picture of you

that i didnt take

and suddenly i remembered

exactly who you are

and the songs

and the moments

and the feelings

and the sadness

and now i know exactly how you felt

when i tried to forget you exist
