I wonder when the sight of her face, the memory of her voice, the flash of her smile -- all started sending dull aches in my chest.
It wasn't always like this. I used to yearn for that memory, that fading ember of how it used to be. I would close my eyes and try to remember her -- alive, as she once been. But those moments were long gone now. And sometimes reaching for them felt like shouting in an empty well: voicing it all out only to find that every word you utter just kept coming back.
The hollowness kills me. It’s a punch in the gut, a twisting of the insides. She was supposed to be a happy memory. It was never meant to be like this.
