There is no greater pain than the pain felt in one's heart.

I will not, however, bore you with the hackneyed observations of love or lackthereof. I will not remind you, reader, that it's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. This, we know, is not true at all. Is it possible to think back on the person who hurt us the worst and truly believe we would never release such an experience if given the chance? The phrases regarding love are many things, among those things often untrue, over used and on very, very spacious occasion correct.

There is no Tylenol for a broken heart. No Percocet for a withered soul. No amount of massage can fix the memories that secretly make us weep. Most unfortunately, science will not give us a cast to put over the crippling lonely nights of a single person. And again I say, I will not bore you with the hackneyed observations of love or lackthereof.

The voids left behind by the ghosts of lovers past never truly void when you consider it, dear reader. They are filled to the brim with the pain and agony of feelings left in the tsunami of emotions that is a failed relationship. So my shallow advice to you is to accept every second of heartbreak. It never goes away. Not one solitary moment, drop or touch. Not a single car ride, sexual session or fight. Not one part of heartbreak is fleeting.

And so I leave you with this; since there are no bandages for a broken heart, feel free to feel everything. Feel every horrid emotion pulsate through your brain. Don't fight the pain as it radiates through your soul, envelops your heart and dribbles among the scattered web of activity that is your brain.

As the old adage goes, whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
