every parent knows what i'm talking about when:
your stomach empties like a dry, ancient volcano that rumbles under the surface threatening to scream a destructive explosion
your stomach grips onto your insides tightening, twisting, and pulling you into a bleak hole until the pain numbs
your broken heart that falls into this bottomless pit softly beats, knocks, ticks, and pumps while swiftly stealing your breath away
your stomach's torture is accompanied with the sleepless nights, the heart that breaks over and over, the endless supply of tears, and the constant, never ending worries and fears.
but on the flip side, there are far more moments in a parents life that stuffs your stomach, warms your insides, and comforts your heart.
but oh, what a parent's stomach goes through!
