Hemingway has his classic moment in "The Sun Also Rises" when someone asks Mike Campbell how he went bankrupt.
All he can say is, "Gradually, then suddenly."
That's how depression hits. You wake up one morning, afraid that you're gonna live.

lost love

A strange sense of safety suddenly thrashed and taken away in an instant.
It’s not fair,
but then again nothing that is true ever is.
I hate it – this bitter taste left lingering in my mouth,
this savage beast that destroys everything in its path,
this thing we call lost love.
Fear catapulted through my body the night he mentioned those four dreaded words
– we need to talk.
It was over before it had even begun.

No, it's never fair. I'm sorry about the loss.
