Guns and horses

"Maybe the most painful part is watching the person you love fall out of love with you. Their grip has loosened, and their eyes have fallen short of the vision you co-created. They no longer laugh at your jokes, ask you about your day, or hold you. They haven't said "I love you" in so long, and haven't meant it even longer. They're too captivated by a silhouette of prospect with a new friend. You catch their flirty glimpses, and confirm your suspensions with texts and call logs. You can steadily sense that you're being etched into a memory that they will rarely recall. They're leaping, face forward, into another person's embrace."
