The cavity of my life : love & loss

Cavity: an empty space within a solid object, in particular the human body

I reflect on the days when my entire body felt empty and bare. My heart did not exist other than the moments I needed to ache. My emotions were numbed, every single one of them. I didn’t know joy anymore. I didn’t know passion. I didn’t know myself.

But I’m not empty anymore. I filled up everything you stole from me. I filled myself with compassion. I filled my days with good work. I filled my life with loving relationships. I filled my heart with a healthy love. I filled my soul with forgiveness and love.

You taught me a lesson. Don’t thank people for sucking the soul out of me in the name of love. I’ll spend the rest of my life filling my soul – and you will never have the chance to steal it again.

 You made me stronger, so thanks I guess.
