It hurt so much it felt like all the air was vacuumed out of my lungs.
The slightest movement a struggle.
Tears poured like hurricane as my eyes lost vision during the drive home.
What a foreign concept when love slowly eludes us.
“Home is where the heart is” they said.
So, where is home now?
My stomach had a nervous pit.
My hands shaking with anxiety.
Head spinning with fear that it was all one-sided.
All at once, it hit me.
It was one-sided.
She’ll never love me the way I loved her. I never once walked out on her, but it was so easy for her to pack up her things and walk away.
My breath of fresh air had been contaminated with her greed for the allure of others. She wanted more, and that honest truth left me feeling worthless. I couldn’t give her what she wanted because she’ll always be chasing butterflies where the grass is greener.
