If you have been through it, you will know that heartbreak is a very devastating thing. It turns you into an empty shell of a being, breathing yet not really alive. You inhale but the tightness in your chest always leaves you gasping for air. It is like an animal trapped and wounded and so you would expect a heart break to make a sound, to yell or screech or yowl. But for a pain so intense, it’s awfully quiet it doesn’t even make a whimper. You almost wish it had a sound that would distract from the pain in your bosom but it is silent, and merciless. Your heart feels like it would burst any second and yet you’re there, with an inch of life, craving to die, yet still alive.

With arms hanging loosely on my sides, I let out all the pain, anger, in my tears as he rocked us lightly.
Freeing me from his hug he cupped my face making me look at him.
The honey eyes, the glittery pale golden skin. He leaned in and kissed my forehead, leaving me stunned as he stroked my cheek.
"So beautiful." He smiled.
And I saw myself shimmering with blue sparkles under the moonlight. Making me wonder what it was?
