“Without you, there is silence and an emptiness
within me where my heart used to be.”
When I’m standing in the rain, feeling the warm water slide down my face, indistinguishable from my own tears, I listen to the sounds of each shaky breath I take, trying desperately not to sob. While it feels like the rest of the world is at peace, dry, and safe, I remember what it was like to dance with you to no other song than the droplets impacting the world around us. I remember the feel of your lips moving against mine. Without you, all I can stand is silence and there’s an emptiness within me where my heart used to be.

My world is too cold without you.
