Today is a very sad day for me.
One of those days where you feel your heart is being ripped from your body, one of those days where you can hardly speak because the pain that fills you, stops the message from the brain to your lips and you are unable to form coherent sentence or sometimes even words.
The sort of day when you hope no one will be too nice to you, because the simplest look of sympathy or understanding of how you feel is enough to send you over the edge.
One of those days where the easiest of things stops you like you have walked into a wall, where you find yourself standing unable to move because you cannot think what you were going to do because the sadness is overwhelming.
I found myself walking along with tears pouring from my eyes, unable to stop them.
I was filled with complete despair.
At lunchtime I looked at my phone and there was a message, not a big long complicated message, a simple message.
My slave x
That was all the words said.........but that is not what my heart heard.
It hasn't made the pain go away, it hasn't made the pain less, but it has made it bearable.
It will pass, it always does; but for the time being I am holding onto those words............... "My slave x" .
That and a big box of tissues.
