Don’t run, savor it
It isn’t really living
To flee from heartbreak and pain
The bitterness of life
That’s what’s really worth living
Feeling it, embracing it, letting it spread throughout your entire body
It starts in the pit of your stomach
Forcing you to sit
Then it writhes its way up to your heart
That lovely red lumpy thing
Totally unaware of the pain plotting against it
Unbeknownst to you, heartbreak takes over
It takes it spindly little hands and climbs up the inside of your throat
And you realize the wetness that is spilling down your cheeks
Out of control
That’s what it feels like
Why won’t this stop?
When will this end?
And then it does.
Heartbreak unlatches it’s spindly little hands from your throat
And you’re back
Numbness takes over
Embrace the pain while you’re able
Because the alternative might be worst
