Recovery

Avatar Author: NobodyKnows I'm simply here to write. ♥ Read Bio

It’s almost funny how you left me so long ago, yet I am still in recovery. I am slowly, yet surely, healing a bit each and everyday. I’d like to believe that I have completely recuperated from this but I would only be lying to myself, and after dealing with the falsehoods you had put before me, I know what I need is the truth. Sometimes I lose myself in my thoughts and desires, and sometimes I can’t help but look back and wish you were still by my side. I dwell over the past and cannot stop myself from imagining what could have, should have, and would have happened if only I had done something differently. Sometimes I long for you, for that mysterious look in your eyes, for that familiar, spicy scent of yours that seemed to linger in the air long after you had gone. But I know what I am feeling is only part of the painfully slow process of moving on. I know I will move on from you eventually, but as for now, I am still in recovery.

    Beautiful! You could use paragraph breaks if you have characters left, but you have put a lot of feeling into this.

    I like the no paragraph breaks. Do we think in paragraphs? Well, okay, some of us do. Others of us have to think to paragraph a thought.

    What I’m trying to say is I think the “no paragraph breaks” was intentional.

    No thought, just feeling.

    I like the sense of hopefulness amidst an honest acknowledgment of emotional pain. I’m going to have side with Elsha on paragraphs, plus that sentence that starts, “I’d like to believe…” might go better broken up or reworded. Still, it’s a lovely, emotional exploration of grieving a lost relationship.
