Just When You Thought

And just when you thought 
 you are already susceptible to pain, 
  there will come another heartbreak-- 
   more afflictive than all the hurt 
    that you've ever experienced.

And just when you thought 
 you can handle situations like this, 
  the undeniably searing pain 
   wounds every inch of you 
    until you could bleed no more.

And just when you thought 
 you conditioned your heart 
  to become emotionless, 
   you feel the devastating part 
    of being shattered once again.

Vexacious. 
Irksome. 
Disturbing.
