I think it's the worst pain a person can feel. It doesn't matter if you've had your heart broken a number of times it never feels less painful, does it? It really does feel like your heart is breaking, you get that constant ache in your chest that never goes away. You think about the person every waking moment and then when you sleep she'll often show up in your dreams too. It's devastating, and it can lead some people to do some extreme things. I wonder if there has been any scientific studies on heartbreak? The feeling is obviously very real, so what is it, why the aching in and around the area of the heart? Have you had your heart broken very much? Not at all? Once?
