The note only says two words. Just two words that send my mind and heart racing.
Covering my mouth to keep in the sob begging to break free, I start chanting, “No, no, no, no,” while practically running to what was our bedroom. Our bathroom. The living room. Ripping open closets, drawers, and cabinets; only to find every trace of him, besides the pictures of us throughout various points of the house, gone. Just gone. As in not coming back. Oh God, this is really it.
What has he done?
My back hits the wall in the hallway outside the bedroom, and I sink down to the floor. Denial and disbelief leave my body, causing me to shake violently. There’s no room for them now. It all needs out, and I surrender as rivers of the most agonizing heartbreak I’ve ever experienced fall from my face to the floorboards. Tiny puddles form to tell me what I should’ve already known. What I should’ve stopped protecting my heart from. And that’s that love can light up your life and wrap you in its protective arms. Whisper sweet nothings in your ear at night. Make you smile when all you want to do is remain angry. But it all can be snatched away in an instant. Just because someone says forever doesn’t mean you should ever truly believe them.
Love lies. And love leaves.
I’m on my own.
It’s really over.
