You want to know what happens after a heartbreak?
For all you know till now, the heart doesn’t crack the way glass does. It doesn’t fall off in pieces or make you bleed physically. Then why have you been so wrecked all these years?
Like a rusted ship, you lie in one of the corners of the harbor, unnoticed and unused for so long, that you are gradually sinking underneath the salted waters and in desperation, you shriek silently as long as your breath last, but you know, what’s surprising?
You never sink.
You stitch your wounds with the petals that has fallen off a wild flower, and like an ink stain, the time phase simply vanishes over the years, making your post heartbreak phase a success, yet the impression or rather the residues of that time stays with you forever, just like a birth mark, giving you an identity concealed from other’s eyes yet, you are acquainted with every inch of that burnt mark.
Then, just as the spring arrives, the trees blossom with flowers of vivid colors and sometimes, you can hear the birds singing in unison as everything around you start unfolding in their best. And, one fine day, you sit down on the bench and admire the beauty around you, feeling hopeful in a million of little ways words fail to describe.
“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
— Marilyn Monroe
