Today I finally caved.
After 9 days without you.
After 216 unbearable hours.
I finally felt my heart break under the constant pressure to be strong and I literally felt my vital organ split into two.
And the tears that I had been blinking back for hours danced in my empty eyes and before I could try to stomach the pain they spilled effortlessly down my face.
And the air was taken from my lunges without any warnings as my knees buckled and I hit the floor.
And suddenly the world that stood before me crumbled down in a black haze.
And then, after 9 days of being strong and trying desperately to convince myself that I was over you & this was for the best… I pulled on your favourite t-shirt, slipped your ring back on my finger, and crawled into my oh so empty queen sized bed.
