Loss. Loss. Loss.
How do people deal with loss? How does this process works? I know we eventually go on with life and time never stops.
Loss. This word. How immense is this. With just 4 syllables we cram the forever aching of our hearts. These 4 syllables contain everything from pain, misery, trauma and emptiness within our hearts.
With this just one word we describe losing whoever we loved. This word is a disservice to what one feels when we lose someone. In fact there isn’t any word in the world that can do justice to losing people we love.
We apparently move on. We eventually run out of tears. We start to put on a smile.
What about the space that is left never to be filled again?
I drown in the immensity of this word over and over.
I repeat it in my head again and again.
But I still can’t get hold of what one feels when losing their loved ones.
All that comes to mind is emptiness one must feel. It NEVER goes away. Even after years have passed….
You just can’t get hold of the pain.
How do people deal? Loss. This word. All I can do is shake my head in defeat. Loss. You never get over it because the spaces left are far too wide and far too deep to be ever filled again.
Loss. This word. So Incomplete.
