Broken Heart in 100 Words.


Dear You, It’s been six months. Six months since the color drained from my world. Six months since you broke my heart. I no longer believe in fairy-tales and magic is just another word. It hurts to write these words, but you betrayed me. Our bond was broken. You let her in. I blamed myself and you didn’t stop me. It wasn’t my fault. You decided to share yourself. Your joys. Your trials. Things that make you happy. Things you despise. Your apology saved us. Her exit should ease my mind. But. It doesn’t. Signed, Me.


Love?


My heart was broken

The damage was done

Laughter and fears

Shared with another one.


Our bond was torn

You let her in

Innocent talk, you say

There was no sin.


She made you laugh

That's what I used to do

You went happily along

I was such a fool.


The truth was told

On your way out the door

I didn't ask you to stay

I was hurt to my core.


My forgiveness was spoken

I accepted you again

Willing to love you once more

I'm just not sure when.


You say your love was renewed

Given time and some space

But I'm still a little numb

Unsure in your embrace.


On a shaky floor of eggshells

I must walk every day

Trying to make your world happy

But shouldn't it be the other way?
