how to reduce heartache in 3 easy steps

Dusk flickered through the sheer curtains, dancing on the floor. She sat in the shadows, her heart shying away from light; least everything inside became visible, vulnerable. Fingers clenched and unclenched around something. Something shiny, glinting, twinkling, sharp, smooth...

And she wondered, not for the first time, how will it feel to plunge it into her breast, beneath which lay the reason of all her sorrows? To hit the problem at its roots. Steel cutting neatly through flesh, oozing blood... maybe it will pain...but then, isn't the only cure of pain is pain? Her heart ached so much that she wish she could wrench it out with her fingers and throw it somewhere, far, far away... to finish off this throbbing pain...

Still thinking, and without realising it, she drew a crimson streak on her arm, followed by another. The knife burnt its way through her flesh. Warm, sticky blood rushed out to cool off the heat. And it was as if something eased inside her. As if an ache subdued.

Samandar lehron ki,
lehron ki
chadar odh ke so raha hai...

par main jagun
ek khumari, ek nasha sa
ho raha hai...

tu magar hai bekhabar...
hai bekhabar...
(OST: Delhi6)

As soon as I read this, I thought of a post I'd written myself. I felt the style of writing was similar.
Link to post

But the thing is, I wrote that post from what actually happened to me. Am sincerely hoping that is NOT the case here.

Take care.

It may reduce heartache for you but not for the people that love you :-)

if only the solution would be as simple as it seems. They say heartaches haunt the dead long after they have watched the embers of their very pyre die down...
