Question: Is heartbreak really that bad ?
"Heart, We Will Forget Him" by Emily Dickinson
Heart, we will forget him,
You and I, tonight!
You must forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.
When you have done pray tell me,
Then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! ‘lest while you’re lagging
I may remember him!
Whoever said it was better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all was so full of himself . Heartbreak is nothing pretty. At the same time, I think labeling "heartbreak" into some kind of romantic, generic category is an injustice to love. Everyone had a different story. Some people met their lover in highschool and realized that they weren't meant to be after years . Some souls were crushed when they were left for someone else. Some people were completely thrown off guard and never saw the devastation coming . Some were lied to, manipulated, cheated on. Some gave everything they ever had to please they're lover ...to get nothing in return . Everyone has a heartbreak to call their own .
Everyone had a different lover . Some of our heartbreakers were the best people we ever knew . The way they looked at you ...like no one else mattered. Their kisses that made your knees weak . The laughs, the comforting times, the inside jokes, the places that you went that make you smile . Athletes, actresses, smart, gorgeous, hilarious, intimate, romantic, strong, rough, ambitious ...there are so many characteristics that made us fall for the ones we did .
Yes, heartbreak has many different components ...however they are all similar because they hurt like a million papercuts in between your toes and thighs . i stand by the statement that if you experience true heartbreak, your heart literally hurts . the pit of your stomach churns and your breathing is unpredictable . you don't know what to think about, you don't know what to say ... your faith in everything is shot to hell . heartbreak hurts .
At the end of the day, heartbreak spray paints a mural in our hearts . a tribute to ourselves nonetheless . all of the times you argued in public with them . all of the times you endured public humiliation at the expensive cost of "love" that you couldn't afford in the first place. all of the times you had to cry . all of the times you felt inadequate and worthless . all of the times you believed them and felt stupid . all of the phone calls that you knew were bad news . everytime your heartskipped a beat while going to their myspace and facebook pages . it paints a picture on your soul that is dark, but courageous . painful, but gorgeous .
Heartbreak can either scar you beyond repair or be the cool scar that you can brag to yourself about .
