Do you ever just sit on the phone with someone but find you can’t find words to express yourself?

I’m wordless.

I’m breathless.

I’m blinded by grief.

I want escape.

I want this to end.

I want to go back to before.

Before I lost her.

Before she was in pain.

Before I loved her too much.

Too much to be able to live without her.

It’s not a choice…

I’m out of choices.

I’m out of energy.

I’m out of my depth.

When will this get easier?

When will this stop hurting?

When will I be done crying?

I’m tired of feeling.

I’m tired of hurting.

I’m tired of crying.

I’m tired of being without you.

I miss you more than I can express.

I don’t know how to carry on.

I don’t know how to move on.

I don’t know how to go on without you.

    Oh dear. You took my advice, now I can't keep up. Ha. Wonderful. I feel every emotion. Well done, Just spell DEPTH, you left off the h. Time heals all wounds they say. I say pain just gets buried and resurfaces here and there. But it lessens and we find the strength to fight on, it gets better, Sometimes much better.
