My Broken Heart

365 days have passed, but the heartache is still as intense as the first day. I lost count of how many days since we last spoke. Your absence is so painful. How abruptly you erased me from your life and didn’t look back. Do you even care? Do you even think about me anymore? Not a day goes by that you don’t cross my mind. Sometimes with a smile at all our happy memories. But usually with tears. I regret ever having known you. Every tear a scar that will take years to heal. I replay every hurtful word or time that you ignored me. It creates craters in my heart. When will the pain end? Is there any hope in another relationship when I carry so much baggage from the last? My expectations have surmounted to the impossible because I’ve seen the damage of being with someone who doesn’t make an effort. I tried so hard to make it work, but you only ever strung me along. Where can I go from here? There is a hole in my heart the size of the void you left. An emptiness that overwhelms me. A gap that I don’t think anyone else will be able to fill.
