When Someone Leaves

In giving my heart to you everything I am went with it… EVERYTHING. I gave you far too much. You left months ago but I am still not over the heartbreak. No longer do I feel like a complete person. There are pieces of me I fear I may never find again. Will I ever?  D.T.

When someone leaves you,
apart from missing them,
apart from the fact that the whole little world
you’ve created together collapses,
and that everything
you see or do reminds you of them,
the worst is the thought
that they tried you out and,
in the end,
the whole sum of parts
adds up to you got stamped
“REJECT” by the one you love.
Helen Fielding
