When someone leaves you on read or opened for 5 months, blocks you, and then gets a new phone, and then constantly changes your friendship status with them. Or when someone causes severe mental or physical pain to someone
A torture device shaped like a pear; had four segments which opened and closed at the turn of a screw at the top, like a flower opening its petals.
This torture gadget was inserted into the mouths or heretics, blasphemers, disturbers of the peace...
Or into the rectums of people convicted of sodomy. Homosexual men were especially vulnerable to this...
Or into the vaginas of women convicted of adultery or "sexual realtionships with Satan".
Often, the ends of the pear's segments were fitted with sharp tines, designed to rip into the throat, intestines, or cervix.
What ever cavity that the pear entered would face a range of things, from a slight expansion of the pear's segments and discomfort for the victim, up to total expansion and unrepairable (and very painful) mutilation of the cavity.
when you feel like you have no words to describe your tormented psyche and only copious amounts of gin, chocolate and bacon cheese bacon curly fries can blot the black mark on your heart.
The feeling of anguish you get when you realize your boyfriend who wrote you sonnets and took you on romantic dinners and courted you for months on end is really a cold blooded maniac who refers to his ex girlfriend as a crazy stalker but is still dating her and YOU.
The anguish you experience when you believe his lies and then see a photo of him standing at a black tie ball with said crazy girlfriend the same night he came home and told you he hadnt seen her in months and adored you
