Such a shame.
Witnessing the hot and cold like seasons changing
hello turns into goodbye
yes into maybe
“I love you” grows hard to come by

and forever?
slowly but surely
becomes never again.  

Have you ever seen a broken heart?
Not one with a single crack down the middle, no
that heart can be mended
One row of sutures pulls it back together leaving a scar that’s almost nonexistent. Almost.  

I wish I had that kind of broken heart. Or something close.

Instead I have the kind most people have never seen
one that shatters and shines like a crystal bowl after hitting concrete
bits and pieces scatter and get lost and no matter how hard you try to put it back together

It will never be whole again.
