a conversation between me and my heart after a painful choice


Oh silly heart.

I speak to you so often on this subject

How can you not yet understand?

Oh silly heart, he’s gone.

It is no more, it shall never be again.

Oh silly silly foolish heart, why do you continue to care?

You chose. This sacrifice is for you.

You are healing, didn’t you know? 

So why do you continue to complain.

You are stronger now, I’ve told you over and over again.

You have smiled many times and will continue to do so.

So why do you cry?

Why do you miss him?

He is gone. Be calm.

My silly foolish heart.

unmasked delusions

I love the voice and style you chose to write this in; it's different and makes the message even stronger.
