Notes on Broken Hearts


If you break my heart
It will shatter into small coloured pieces
That made up my love for you.
They will sadden my body
My veins for their vessel
My emotions intangible
I’ll eat toast at breakfast and cry
And not know why
Until I remember you broke my heart.

If you break my heart
That thin blue line we used to draw for the sky
Will seep down the page
To make it twilight and cold
And I’ll be made up of sticks
No body needed
For now I’m a child and you broke my heart.

If you break my heart
Terror will reign,
Not the kind on the news again and again
But the sort of fear that keeps you here
How sad that you’re scared of breaking my heart
And that it’s already done.
