The First Time #30Layers30Days


The first time I knew we might not spend our life together,

That you weren’t sure it’s what you wanted.

I felt my heart break.

My body ran cold and my head throbbed.

I couldn’t think straight.

I didn’t understand at first what you were saying.

I had to read between the lines, but it was clear.

I wanted to be confused.

I wanted to be mistaken.

I felt physically sick.

Suddenly my future which a minute ago had been so clear,

Was now dark.

A huge black cloud now overshadowed everything I had been looking forward to,

Living for.

The first time I realised you could live without me,

A part of me died.
