As has been said, we are all right there with you. It is unbearably painful to even think about it. I hope with time we can heal, but for now its torture. I wish we could all be together during this extremely hard time that I think only we can really understand what we are going through. My husband doesn't know because he didnt share the love for the man as we have, it is nice to know that there are people who also feel the very real pain I am feeling daily since the news. Love to you all.

This pain will never leave my heart I'm feeling so empty breathing air on this earth knowing Prince has left us.He has been my hope,He has saved me with his music,his word..his poetry.Im left to feel in a way where my days are lost consumed with tear,I can't sleep I can't believe it's happened I'm walking in a shadow of pain.I want him back,I've been told off for not being able to get over this and made to feel a fool for crying each day for a man I have loved and adored since I was 12..I'm now 36 this just doesn't heal after the headlines fade.i have found comfort in knowing that others here and around the world are feeling the loss as deep and I'm never going to be the same his music is now with me again I've just started to listen again..I'm in a world of pain. I don't like this air anymore.

I'm only comforted by the fact that I am not alone and some of you feel the same. The day it happened, I saw it on the news at work in the middle of lunch. I ran to the restroom crying and people came in pounding on the door to see if I was ok. But nobody seemed to understand why I saw taking it so hard. When I went to the Spike Lee tribute in Brooklyn, all I did was cry. I couldnt bare to listen to the music and see people crying and singing. Today is day 13....its not any easier yet. Barely sleeping and hardly eating,,,,just going over the few things we know...and so incredibly sad that there's nothing that can be done. Wish I could hug you all.

I don't think I will ever feel normal again. This pain is unbearable, not a day has gone past without tears yet and the world seems such a sad place without him. I want to wake up from this nightmare but I never will. I am just thankful I can talk about this to all of you and you understand - no one else does.

Thank u 4 a funky time

You'll get there. I have been off track for a few days, but i'm getting back on. Fortunatly I have a lot of distraction. I have a kid running around, we're camping right now, and i have been riding my motorcycle a few times since two years. When I relax I still can't seem to really understand he's really gone, but i'm constantly playing his music and that keeps (t)here.

Stay strong!

I don't even think I know what normal is. My sister invited me to see a concert in July and I said "are you kidding" I can;t think about seeing anyone else and besides who would I want to see? It won't be Prince so I don't want to go. I went to 27 concerts and 10 private performances in clubs....how is someone else supposed to measure up. Forget about all that I listened to Price daily. He was sunshine and joy.... I just want him back.

Yes...I probably shouldn't have watched it but I couldn't not. I broke down when Eric Leeds played. The entire thing was filled with haunting sadness.

From the start of my journey through my life as an 11 yr old girl I found something in Prince ..aside from how strikingly beautiful he is..to my eyes, the music he created has been the gospel of my lonely and awkward childhood. In Prince I found acceptance,strength,courage,love..truth and joy.He meant so much to me when I meant nothing to anyone and nothing meant anything to me..he opened my eyes and my soul became alive once again whenever I played P's music..I don't know why but I never thought there would be a time when Prince wouldn't be here,I mean I'm 35 now it's been some ride..I thought he'd be here still..maybe when weve been connected this long even if it is only through the music,parts of our lives are embedded in the songs/Albums too.I think he is always here with us..each one of has something that we connect to but it's hard to accept the world seems so quiet now. For me nothing will ever be the same it's like losing a part of yourself. We were truly blessed and I am eternally greatfull for the gift that we were privelleged enought to have witnessed.

Beautiful words and your description about the world now being quiet is spot on. Never ever thought his passing would affect me as bad as it has, but then I never expected to live in a world where he didn't exist. We were privileged and blessed but oh how I wish he was still was still with us hug

Thank u 4 a funky time

Me, too. I simply can't believe he's gone. Like many of us, I just never imagined a world without him. I feel bad that he was in so much pain and poor health and know one really knew. I just hope he knew how much he was loved. I take small comfort in knowing he was very strong in his religious beliefs, so I know he didn't fear death. I already miss the excitement any news of a concert, new album or awards show appearance brought me -- just like when I was a teenager.

Only true fans understand the impact of his music personally. Like many of you, I have a PRINCE playlist on my iPad with a hundred of my "all-time favorite" songs. No other artist even comes close. I could hit repeat on the playlist all day and never get bored, getting excited when I hear the first few chords of each song. There is definitely joy in repetition. (Thank you, PRINCE.)

I had three brief interactions with him, all by luck. I wrote about them on a local website (here in Denver) that I edit and write for:

http://www.milehighonthec...doves-cry/

I don't think I will fully accept his death for quite some time -- probably in a few years. I just can't believe there will not be any new music or concerts. I find myself crying, when I really take a moment to take it all in. I can't even utter the words, "PRINCE is dead." I literally get choked up.

I miss him so much. It's not fair that sometimes in snows in April.

I am not feeling well at all either. On the one hand I find relief thinking he's done it all. He has given all he could in his life time. I mean we were rambling about the same song sets, and how the album aren't as good as they should be. We were talking about him doing concerts without a band. We were worrying about him for at least 3-5 years. I think I was ready for him to retire at some point. In that sense I am ok if there won't be any new music in the future. Just gotta accept that and I don't care much about the Vault material either. I think it should be kept locked.

As for what happened a month ago: Everything happened so fast that week I don't think I was able to process it at all. I must admit I had some sort of identity crisis as it felt like it happened unexpectedly. We were all in shock. Now thinking back obviously I am trying to make sense of it all to handle the grief better. We were talking about how healthy he was and capable of doing so many concerts. Now at least we know why and how. To me that showed the vulnerable side of him and there is some message there from him

For the future this is the scariest part. I have no idea what we are going to do without him. He was with me now for nearly 30 years and I have so many memories. I have also been thinking a lot about the reasons why he left no will. You all know he said he does not care about the past. I guess that's why he left no will. I really believe that's what he was thinking.

Prince I will always miss and love U.
