The thing about broken hearts

That no one ever believes

Is that they never last, my dear.

You feel it in your chest-

This cold, dead, hardened shell of a thing,

And you can’t possibly see how it will ever love again.

And it doesn’t. It never loves again.

But that’s okay, because it has a new purpose now.

It protects 

The New Heart,

Slowly growing inside the broken shell of

The broken heart.

When you are ready to love again, my love,

The New Heart will break through the shell,

And you’ll have all your love to give again.
