Empty Without You

He was gone. She gave her entire self to him, heart, body, mind and soul, but he didn't care. He had just packed up and left, taking everything she gave with him.

"He's gone," was all she could say as she stared at the dresser, now half empty, with silent tears flowing from her vacant eyes. It hadn't mattered that she loved him, that they had spent five years together, or that they were supposed to get married. He was gone. She gave her entire self to him, heart, body, mind and soul, but he didn't care. He had just packed up and left, taking everything she gave with him.

Now, as she sat there curled in a ball on their - her lonely king sized bed, she was nothing but an empty and broken shadow of her former self. She couldn't even find the strength to get angry. Though he had lied to her, cheated on her, and left her it still didn't matter. He was her everything and now she had nothing. Sure, there were her friends and family but they wouldn't understand and she couldn't possibly fathom trying to tell them for fear she might feel something. In her mind it was better to feel nothing and be numb to the world around her, than to have to live with the agony that no doubt would have ripped her heart to shreds if it hadn't already been done.

Surrounded in the silent darkness that was her room, the air seemed stale and suffocating. It felt as though something was sucking the oxygen right out of her body and as her vision started to blur, from the combination of the tears and lack of oxygen, she was vaguely aware of the sound of gut-wrenching sobs. If it were her former self hearing them, they would have broken her heart. But as it was, that person was gone, never to return, and she was too empty to care.

The lack of oxygen was taking its toll on her quickly and what little strength she had left in her frail body was depleting fast. Her muscles started to relax and slowly she descended into a crumpled heap on the bed. The last thing to pass through her chapped lips before the darkness took over and she slipped into a dreamless slumber was "he's gone"

The End
