Is this what it feels like...
to break?

It's not as painful as I imagined...

I feel so numb.
I don't feel anything anymore.

Even the hot tears don't exist.

This is the price I pay,
for being stupid.

For being human.

for falling in love.

Love hurts...
It always has...
and I'm starting to wonder if it always will...

No one can peice me together anymore.
I've broken into shards.
Shattered into smithereens.

I'm totally broken now.
Nothing can fix me.
It's too late for me now.

I think I can truly say,
That I don't love you anymore.
I can't.
Because I feel nothing.

I want to cry.
I want to scream.
But I can't.

The tears won't come.
The cries get caught in my throat.

I didn't know how it would feel...
when I finally reached my breaking point.

Now I do.

Please don't lie to me anymore.
It's not going to be okay.

I'm not going to get stronger.

But at least I know...
I can't get any weaker, either...
