Eggs-Treme Pain.

When the fragile
shell of love breaks,
it scrambles emotions,
that seldom go over easy,
or it simmers intact,
with the embryo
of what was
hard boiled away by
the heat of angst.


Love can be poached

without you even being aware,

by even your best friend.


Even Humpty Dumpty

who was in love with a wall,

found that she was not all

he was cracked up to be.


Love is a yoke for two,

each must pull together

in the same direction

to get anywhere.


One often remains in their shell,
solidified within
themselves and left
incubating in sorrow,
while all around
other loves hatch.
