Remember Love

A heart never breaks even.

It never takes the shape of the one

Jagged line you would draw as a child

An image you were at least familiar with


A heart cracks in places you never knew could hurt

Pieces fall away

Dropping into the bottom of your stomach

Which is tied up in knots

Because somewhere in you knows

You'll never get those back

You fear you won't know what being whole is like again

And you never felt more whole than….


When you were…

When we were…..

And then another chip falls

It hurts to remember

Heartbreak begets

Heartache and

Heartache makes the heart break



One must never forget

For if you remember love

Remember what it looks like

Feels like

It'll be easier to find
