how would you describe heartbreak
heartbreak is the feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you check your phone and see you have 12 missed calls from your mom. heartbreak is seeing them smile and laugh with someone else. it’s seeing the sparkle in their eye when they look at someone new, knowing that sparkle used to be for you, it was always for you. it’s trying so hard and never stopping, only to still come up short in the end. heartbreak is late nights where your mouth finds the mouth of a bottle while their mouth finds the mouth of a stranger. it’s seeing them in public a few months later and smiling and waving and going through the “hi, how are you?” “oh, i’m great! how about you?” and pretending to be happy for them when all you can think of is how much it’s going to hurt when you have to say goodbye. it’s coming home to an empty house with an even emptier heart and laying face down in bed with the photos of you two still in their frames face down on your nightstand, because you know touching them will hurt too much so it’s better to act like they aren’t there.
