I felt my heart rip its way through my chest and slam itself onto the floor. Every part of me throbbed with desperation as I stood there screaming inside. I had so many things that I wanted to say but I was frozen. It was as if the world had stopped spinning and all I could do was stand there and allow my soul to slowly melt away.

I wrapped myself up in my oversized beige cardigan that my mother had given me years ago. It used to give me comfort but the material scratched against my skin, leaving me feeling uncomfortable and uneasy. The sky wollowed in self pity over me and the dull clouds merely ignored my existance, staring straight through me. The crispy autumn leaves danced around my feet blissfuly unaware of my pain. 

The overpowering bang of my heart echoed around my body reminding me that I was still alive. I couldn't bring myself to look into his eyes because I knew then that I would have to accept that it was over; I wasn't ready to do that. 

Just as I had almost plucked up the courage to speak, my gut that was swirling with agression and rejection, forced me to push out the emotion that was becoming unbareable. Vomit dripped onto my shoes in time with the tears dripping down my face. I wanted his tender touch against my cheek, I needed him to keep me sane. I looked into his once glistening eyes with every ounce of strength that I had. But there was nothing. The love and passion that I used to see had morphed into a black hole of nothingness. 

He started to walk away; I grabbed his arm but he shrugged my hand off which stung like a slap in the face. I slammed my fist into a tree nearby as I howled. Blood dripped down my knuckle. I punched and punched and watched the open wounds fill with dirt and despair. 'Why dont you love me' I screamed over and over again. 'Why dont you love me anymore?'
