The Way You Broke Mine

If there ever was a moment

to start being gentle,

taking care of other hearts

the way mine would want to be treated,

to start blowing kisses

at times curses would rather come forward,

to start caressing feelings

when thoughts would rather explode,

to start being brave,

killing hopes and taking responsibilities,

Let them down easy but be free of guilt still-

I’d thank you in the way

roses get plucked to declare love

I died, so I’d know not to kill again

So I’d know not to break those hearts

the way you broke mine.
