Short heart-wrenching true love story…
Once upon a time, my best friend and I were at a subway terminal and we saw a young couple clutching each other, sobbing uncontrollably. Her face was in his chest, soaking his jacket, while he held her tight and sobbed in her hair. Kisses and tears mingled together in an emotional devastation, neither wanting to let go. It was utter desperation. Absolute heartbreak.
But the time had come, and she finally had to let him go. She boarded her train, while he stood there watching what seemed like his whole life, leaving him. Staring after her, until the very last moment. She was gone. And now he was alone.
I will never forget that moment. Love at its most intense. Love at its saddest. This was goodbye. Temporary or permanently, I will never know.
P.S. My memory is brought to you by a heartwrenching scene that reminded me of this moment, from “Dear Aaron“. 😉
