The news hit me with such force it seemed to shake the foundation of my soul like waves crashing upon the shore during a mighty storm. My mind was battered and bruised with no chance of repair, how had it come to this? I was strong, determined, and full of hope when I came to this new point in my life, but this was more than my heart could bear; and my barriers started to crumble.
My life was shattered when she told me there was no chance to reconcile our differences; and that was of no use to her emotionally, as well as physically. She no longer needed me to hold her or make love to her, but I still needed her there was no denying that fact, and still, she berated me and continued to crush my soul.
So, as she continued to blast me with insults that hurt more than any beating she could give my body my mind wandered to a better time, a place where the sun shined; and she was the most beautiful person. The sun was shining upon her hair and her eyes sparkled providing a glimpse into a future that would last forever, but that was not to be; I had to face the truth that our relationship had run its course, and with that, I looked deep into her eyes and said goodbye my love.
