The dream had been too real. She could feel the steal slipping under her finger tips as she dangled above nothingness. Could see him standing in front of her, hand out stretched, screaming for her to hold on. He looked at her then as he used to, like she was a precious gift he couldn't bare to part with.
Just when their finger tips had touched he'd jerked away and instead grabbed the hand of someone she hadn’t noticed struggling next to her. She recognized the woman immediately. As he pulled the woman into his arms, her heart broke. With one last tear-filled glance at her soul mate she let herself slip away.
The choking had woken her. Her body practically convulsing with the strength of the sobs that had escaped her sleep laden body. Her pillow had been soaked and she'd wondered how long the torment had lasted.
She'd let a man do this to her. Had willingly set aside who she was to cater to him. Given one hundred and ten percent of herself, only to be used and cast aside. It took her a while to pick back up the pieces of her broken life. Forever changed, she'd made herself a promise that never again would she give herself so wholly to another human being. No one would have the power to completely and irrevocably devastate her. She had hardened her heart; learned to rely on herself and no one else. Living half a life, she was content to drift from day to day simply empty.
