for you know how I cherished you


Notes

the transition from soulmates to strangers;

coming to terms with the fact that you don't love me anymore

title is from a sappho fragment, which i recommend reading if you really want to cry ((the tragic love stories of ancient greek lesbian poets always get to me))

ps it's really fuckin hard to make a non-heterosexual breakup mix so forgive the pronouns

It's Sappho 94:

It is my straightforward wish to die: with much bewailing she left me bereft,and said in particular this: “Oh—oh—what a terrible thing is happened tous, Sappho! You I leave all against my will.” I answered her, “Go in peace and have thought of me; for you know how I cherished you. If you do not, I will remind you . . .”
