Sounds like you and the ex shared quite a range of special things. Sometimes that sucks because things you used to enjoy doing alone, you now have mixed feelings about because no longer can you do them without on some level wishing he was still there.

I guess that's one of the great risks one takes when one falls in love. Once one has opened up certain parts of one's soul to another soul, those parts are no longer private; they are permanently shared, even after the other soul has left one's life.

Sometimes I feel afraid to touch the lady I'm now with when we're sleeping together. I want to protect myself by curling up in a solitary ball. But then I remember that the risk of love is always worth it, and always necessary, even when it ends in death or separation.

So I reach out tentatively, nervously, and allow myself to appreciate the closeness I have with her in the here and now.
