Heartbreak


Heartbreak is a scar that you carry around hidden beneath your sleeve but always visible in your eyes.


No matter how much you grow or how many others you fall in love with, you never forget that one great, big heartbreak.


And it’s not just your heart that breaks, it’s your mind as well.  


You see life differently and everyone else you encounter thereafter is subjected to careful examination. 

You put on a brave face at work all day but when you return home you find yourself struggling to pick up the pieces of your shattered heart that have fallen everywhere and nowhere.


This break, this dark cloud dipping into your soul has brought you to your knees leaving you unable to sleep, think or eat. The pain so intense, you are convinced it cannot be tamed.




But for the most part and as time goes on, the thoughts and images fade and the pain lessens. The heart begins to heal and blossom and you open it up for business once again.


You realize that without a broken heart, you would never know what it feels like to truly love someone. 

You realize that even a broken heart beats.


We all experience heartbreak.


You do.


I do.


And any heart that has yet to be broken knows it's only a matter of time.
