It’s the kind of pain that makes you cry until your entire body hurts. Until your eyes are bloodshot red, you can’t breathe out of your nose, and your mascara is running down your eyes like an oil spill.
It’s the kind of pain that makes you curl up in bed for days and just sleep, because that’s the only time your heart isn’t breaking.
It’s the kind of pain that overwhelms you. Envelops you. Sucks the life out of you. It’s the kind of pain that feels like it will never go away. You don’t want to live. You don’t feel like life will ever be worth living again.
It’s the kind of pain that knocks the wind out of you. That blindsides you and hits you so hard it brings tears to your eyes. It’s the kind of pain that is inescapable.
The hard truth is that everyone will go through it one day, and some of us more than others.
It has been a very long time since I have felt heartbreak, but it’s a feeling you can never forget.
No matter how much time has passed.
No matter how much your heart has mended.
The feeling will never leave you.
For fear that you will feel it again.
