Heartache doesn’t soften over time.
The pain grows roots.
It takes residence in the soul.
We journey forward, learning as we go.
The heartache gives us perspective and deeper understanding.
It becomes part of who we are.
In that open, vulnerable space is where our love resides.
Love never fully understood in a space that will never fade.
