Flicking through my feed
Looking at some pictures
I knew that you and she were friends
But when the picture scrolled past my screen my heart stopped cold
Anytime I see you it’s enough for time to stop
While every chemical and hormone, which you cause to be released, rushes through me
I become a statue on the outside – taking in your face, your mood, your appearance.
On the inside I am burning, boiling, blistering
But this wasn’t just a normal picture of you
This was a picture of her kissing you
And you were smiling
Like you were so happy
I felt sick
Tears were welling in my eyes
Pain sliced through me
Resonating deep in my heart
I stopped breathing
My mind went dark
All I could feel was the shock
Coursing through my body like electricity
I dropped my phone and awoke from my numbing stupor
How could this happen?
Don’t you know how much I adore you?
How could you destroy me with this picture?
