Broken-hearted

Yoneko Shiraishi

Looking at the rain fall, I wonder where it all went wrong. I love him. And I know he loves me, but I guess sometimes love is not enough.
I am lost in Tokyo without him. I don’t have either family or friends here.

Tokyo is so big and so small at the same time, and people are kind while distant. This is a city of contradictions, where only the strongest survive and I am not even sure to have the tenacity to try it.

I came to this country because of him. I didn’t come looking for a future. I didn’t come to get a job. I came to this country to be with him.

And now I lost him. Maybe forever.

He met this girl called Sachi a few months ago, and since then nothing was the same. He started staying late at work. And lost interested in intimacy, he never touched me again.

But maybe, I should start for the beginning and tell you that my name is David.
