excerpt from text called ’falling'

(37) love

 What did I fall in love with? Her love for her mother and father eventually, linking loving her to not doing enough for my father.

 That’s it it seems. She loved and I loved her loving her parents and my father through me. It was too much when it ended and it's too much now. She went about her life and I follow on behind.
