deluge of tears

a deluge of tears
fell down my cheek
as I read parting words
that slit my heart open

I did not think
I could hurt so much
from an affair that
lasted only a season

but I had my hopes
I suppose I still do
but it gets harder
to believe in such dreams


  1. That can hurt very deeply.. and I don't blame you as it gets harder to believe in such dreams.

  2. Intensity is what causes much as, if not more than time.

  3. It can be a great chasm in our soul. You described it to a tee, thanks

  4. I think we've all been there; if we haven't, we will!

    It's amazing at how quickly we can get attached to a new relationship. I guess we fall hard because we're so newly invested and excited at the prospect of a new love. And I agree, it does get harder to believe in those dreams.

  6. It is hard when a relationship ends. I had one that ended after 13 years and for several years, I could not would not love. But then, the right man walked into my world. Happy endings. I wish happy endings for you.

  7. Sometimes those seasons can last forever. I know this piece will resonate with many.

  8. The pain in this drips thickly. It touches deeply, Arcadia!

  9. Sounds like a deep cut! Those are painful but they're also a lot of fun while they last! Really great read!

  10. Such events really shape and scar in myriad ways, poignant...

  11. Once the heart is set on something or someone, the absence of that person will be deeply felt. Poignant but true.

  12. Your words really touched me and I had to go away and come back again as I didn't quite know how to respond.
    It is true that many of us have been deeply hurt when an affair/relationship comes to an abrupt (and unwanted) end. How can love hurt so much?
    Thinking of you.
    Kind regards

  13. Thank you everyone for reading and commenting.

  14. A sadness I'm sure many of us have known. Yet it's always deeply personal.
