Was it worth it?

The pain of loss

The heartache of grief

The memories of happiness fade into oblivion

The moments of pain are all that remain

Looking back, I wonder why I ever cared

Was it worth it to love?

Was it worth it to laugh?

Was it worth it when I cried?

The anxiety still builds in my chest

No thought of you can sustain

I’m shackled by my own mind.

Please put me out of my misery

I’m tired of wondering why

Because all I see is tragedy in waiting

Were you actually worth anything at all?

The repetitive nature of heartbreak. It always hits hard and feels like a slow death.
