I loved you.

I guess I thought you’d always be around. Giving me more incredible music, more one-word interview answers, more stoicism or sultriness or sexymotherfuckerness with those eyes, that voice, at once mocking and transcending everything that tried to contain or steer you. I expected an impervious-ness to something as common as death. There are so few constants in this world, and your brilliance in music, performance, virtuosity, YOU-ness–was one of those constants. I can’t believe you’re gone, and that we don’t get to share more time in this world with you. It wasn’t enough. ‪The only thing that has given me comfort is hoping that you’re right about that God and afterlife you so believed in. I hope you are there right now, smirking at all of us. I miss you. I love you. Thank you.
