Long Distance Heartbreak
The words “It’s never going to work between us” Echoed through his mind as the phone died. No other words have or ever could hurt more. You could almost hear his heart smash into pieces like glass as it hit rock bottom. He lay in bed, 3:21am shone from his clock, through the dark room, the red ambient glow it created made everything seem surreal. Thousands of miles between them. Thousands of memories shared, and he was left with the sound of a dead phone to comfort him. He replayed the whole conversation in his head. As he did tears flooded from his eyes and they didn’t stop until they drowned him to sleep. To a sleep he wished he wouldn’t wake up from. His reality use to be better than his dreams. But now no nightmare could compare to what he was going through. Not only his heart was broken but his whole world it seemed.
I would like to tell you love is all rainbows and butterflies but I would be lying. I would like to tell you once you fall in love its happily ever after, but its not. Trust me I know, I’ve been through it all. Love is journey unlike no other. Love is a choice you make daily. Some days are easier than other. Some days feel like the movies, like your flying and not even gravity can hold you down. But other days are just cold and cruel, and the pain in those days feel like life is not worth living. It feels worse than any physical pain, a knife through the heart would be easy to bare compared to it.
So I hear you ask “Why love at all? Is it really worth it?”
My answer….”You can bet it is!”
