Can the gods really be that cruel??
Have you ever had a time in your life when things seemed to be going so perfectly....the stars seemed aligned, every day was a blessing, a joy, you woke up with a smile tugging at the corners of your mouth and a twinkle in your eye, all the rough edges seemed smooth, and the dull skies bright, laughter, fun, happiness...nothing could hurt you, or penetrate your armor of bliss, life was...outstanding!!!
And then, just like a thief in the night, something so unexpected, so unreal, so out of the ordinary, so inexplicable comes along and stabs you in the heart, pierces you in the back, you lose your breath, your vision becomes blurred, there is physical pain, you feel a sense of shock and awe, disbelief, fear, sadness, disappointment, hurt, betrayal, and no amount of screaming or crying or wringing of hands and clutching of self eases the pain so you do nothing. You lie completely still and stare into space, no blinking, no talking, no movement, whatsoever.
It just cannot be true....but, reality stares starkly back at you and you know, alas, yes it is!
The gods cannot be this cruel!! It must be a dream....right??? PLEASE say that it is......
It has happened to me before and I pray that it never happens again!!
I gave my best...
