I knew the love wasn’t there anymore, when he’d end with just “goodnight”. A sign so trivial, only a better half can be expected to notice- and I did.
Goodnight, he said simply. Without any accompaniment; no dear to lighten it, no honey to sweeten it. And I knew, it was only a matter of time before even the goodnight would vanish.

It wasn’t the ending that hurt. It was- watching everything evaporate right before my eyes, watching a marriage collapse, brick by brick. Seeing the sand grains float to the ground and knowing there was nothing I could do about it. He had made his choice… for us.

  1. It’s so heartbreaking to be torn apart like that…knowing it is happening, yet hoping it’s not real and then the end comes and the realization tears your heart apart! A very well written, sad story.


  2. This is hauntingly beautiful. My heart has felt this pain, it is a pain that I wish upon no one. Thank you for sharing in such a touching way.
