She holds him close, smiling with happiness, and whispers, “I love you.” My heart aches and I suffer a pain that I cannot ignore. I’d rather be burned by fire, cut by a knife, or feel some other physical pain, but instead this emotion causes a pain greater than anything physical and I cannot bare it! I wake to find her close by my side. She sees my tears and wipes them away. “Never again my dear, never again will it happen.”

Thank you Heather! I have since healed. This project and many others are a part of my healing and dealing with issues that "life" throws my way. Thank you for reading and commenting.

I have felt similar pain, where physical pain would be desired over the pain in my heart. It is wonderful that you have someone by your side for support. I have had my husband by my side during many heartaches. Though his support has always provided some comfort, it wasn’t until I did the necessary hard work inside of me, that I began to heal. Wishing you a successful journey to healing.
