It has been 8 sad months...

It has been 8 months today since our beloved Prince passed away...

We miss you Prince.

It's been , and still is bloody awful. A huge loss to music. No more brilliant live performances that only Prince can give. Soul destroying.

It's still kind of unbelievable that someone so full of life is gone in an instant. A twitter Prince fam wrote "Losing Prince felt like we had lost something elemental, as if an entire color had just completely disappeared."

..Hello, who is it?
Yes, this is a prettyman, Princey!

Without wanting to offend someone here - but how many of you who still "feel a loss everyday" / "still have the emptiness inside" actually were personal friends with Prince? Or at least saw him on a regular basis in person?If not, how come you are still mourning without having had a personal connection?

Just wondering, to each his own, so please do not take offense cool

It is a fair question and I cannot understand it myself asI cant explain why I still feel the loss every day either............ neutral

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind 💜

I never met him, yet, I still feel a profound loss from time to time. Prince's music has been an integral part of my life for 25 years. If that isnt reason to mourn, I dont know what is..... My guess is that you havent been a big fan for too long. Feelings are feelings. My wife cried after the election and I dont get it. I didnt like the outcome, but I wasnt profoundly moved. Once again, feelings are feelings and there is no rulebook on grief or heartbreak.

(Insert something clever here)

I identify, GG.
I believe that certain people "know" deep in their hearts that there was something very special about Prince. He wasn't just a great musician...he was much more than that in personality and spirit.
That's why I know he's still here, just in a different form.
He had a special relationship and feelings for his fans. He really loved us.

It still hurts. Often think of him.

Can listen to his music again but some songs still drive me to tears.

Definitely agreed! Prince was truely one of a kind...he's magical..it's hard to explain but when you feel P's spirit you just know. I know he's still here and that's what makes it the hardest because we just can't see him physically. I think about him daily still..actually crying while typing this right now. I wish the pain could go away and I wish he were still here..reality really sucks. Those of you who have actually had the chance to meet him or even just go to his concerts are blessed. Cherish those moments for the rest of your lives.

Few people have that kind of charisma, that quality that sets them apart, Prince had that. He was blessed with talent, a good heart, the soul of a poet and those big beautiful eyes.
Baby, you're a star.

Meet me in another world, space and joy

Yup. I went through a period of time where it was so painful...I just could not do anything to get him to be here.
One thing that's helped is some of his lyrics...he said that with real love there is no yearning.
So as hard as it was I started thinking of what I could give him instead of wanting him to be here. I started praying for him. That helped a lot. To want for his spirit's comfort and peace and lightness and joy. To be kept warm. Things like that.

Still find myself wishing it weren't true, still sad realizing it is. Want to turn back time and have the events of Apr 20th-Apr 21st turn out differently for our Prince. It's all just so unreal. He was here, then all the sudden he was gone. Listening to him is both comforting and painful. But I do every day since Apr 21st, almost obsessively, as if it will somehow bring him back, or at leaat keep him close enough so I don't get the sense he's really gone forever. I wish we were talking about last weekend's gig at PP, or his next tour, instead of museums and tributes.
It's a hurtful place, the world, in and of itself. We don't need to add to it. We all need one another. ~ PRN

Hugs...I have also been nonstop listening to him every day (I did before Apr 21st) but now I don't want to hear anything else... you also wrote exactly how I feel too. It is nice to hear I am not alone comfort

Because the power of art and creativity you identify with is deeper a part of you than family or friends. Because it's actually part of yourself, not the real person who you didn't know.
