Sheer suffering

The ache deepens as I was having a tour of our old photos again,

I could hardly breathe, my heart seemed like being punched by a giant’s fist.

I shed tears as I cogitate the why’s of your unforeseen evanescence.

How could we end up as terrible as this?

How could you just let go of the dreams we vowed to achieve?

You left me hanging like a cat of multiple lives who was born again after a cataclysmic death—in this new life, there’s but no more of you.

Tell me, is there something I should have done to prolong the pages of our story?

  1. Life goes on sometimes in spite of us. In spite of what we want. This experience can serve you for the future. Do not dwell too long on the past or it’s ravenous jaws will quickly ensnare you. Look to the future and take all you’ve learned there. It may be hard now to envision but time is a marvellous thing and it lets us slowly move away from the emotional pains we bear. You will get better. You will heal. And a new you can now be discovered by something else, a new hobby or new passion. When you have nothing left, everything becomes possible.

  2. The pristine aching pain will disappear in time like tears in rain.

  3. I would just change : my heart seemed like being. It sounded strange because it’s two approximations one after the another.

      1. Perhaps: my heart throbbed like being punched… or my hurt ached as though being punched.

      2. Hmm maybe a metaphor or a simile:my heart shook/cried like being punched… or something of the sort. Or
        My heart felt as though it were being punched by…

    I dunno about such intense feelings of longing.. I feel only pain where love used to be.. But I miss those wonderful times and wish I could rewind them and watch them again and again like a video… There was a time it was perfect… It ended badly but it had to end somehow.. Someday…

      Aw I’m sad to hear this but look at you, you’re sooo positive and hopeful. Everyone should be like you when they’re moving on, you know.

    Haha thanks. I think allowing yourself to feel the entire depth of emotion is important. Most people block their emotions out. That’s not healthy. Let them flow. Anger happiness grief.. All emotions lack control over you if you know how to express them in a healthy way.
