The End of the Cycle

by Cindy Freeman 5 years ago in heartbreak
Report Story

Letting go of something that you thought would never end.

As he walked away from me

The only thing I could think of was

don't cry...

It took all my strength not to start weeping

I could feel the tears starting to pierce my eyes

Every step I took back to my house

I could feel my heart breaking

piece by piece

The air in my lungs felt like it was

leaving my body

slowly taking everything I had with it

Why out of all these times

is it supposedly ending

Why out of all these times

did it feel like he was really slipping away

How could my heart

be so attached to someone

who wasn't even with me

in the end
