Just like that; all hope is gone.
In one second; during one phone call; the last tiny little bit I had harboured for so long, has now vanished.
And with that, my heart was broken; shattered; poured out onto the floor; crushed beyond recognition.
Once and for all.
My heart broke into a thousand pieces for the last time over you.
Where there was once hope; there is now nothing, but pure despair.
