Sometimes the loneliness hits me while I’m asleep. The thought that you are no longer with me, leaves me jagged with a desolate kind of emotion. I feel like I’m alone on an island. I feel your rejection over and over again, even in sleep, and there is no solace. Only activities to obliterate the pain that is still there. No other man can fill that void that you left in me. That void was always there. You were the only one who filled it, but you didn’t want to be with me. You chose someone else to spend the rest of your life with. Even though time lessens the impact, it does not erase the pain of rejection…when the beloved does not want your love. I am bereft. I miss you. I yearn for you. Sadness permeates every part of me, even after all this time.
