Heartbreak

The first words she said

Like a drop in my ocean

A stone falling deep

Sinking to its depth.

 

I stared at her in shock

Or was it fear?

Feeling myself break

Closer to my death.

 

My heart

Stops.

 

Just for a moment

I don't breathe

I try to wake myself

Up.

 

Gasp.

One time.

Then the next.

 

I look away

Is this real?

Will it fade away?

 

Deeper

It sinks

 

The truth.

 

"I don't love you anymore"

No.

"We can't be together"

Don't.

"Maybe in our next life."

Please.

"I'll love you."

 

It hits

The floor.

 

I blink.

And reach out.

 

But she steps back.

And the farther she goes

I start to tear inside.

 

Completely gone:

I grip thin air.

In hopes I placed

of love

I found

 

Heartbreak. 

The End
