    I know
    What a breaking heart looks like;
    Being crushed from the inside out.
    Until it’s beautiful curves collapse,
    A quivering heap that once was full,
    Once was whole.
    It’s the lights going out,
    When moments before your eyes were so bright,
    They could illuminate his life.
    I know
    What a breaking heart feels like;
    It’s drowning in a desert,
    And all you can grasp is sand in your hands.
    It’s a memory leaving you don’t want to lose,
    Slipping through your fingers.
    It’s the life raft
    Who’s meant for someone else,
    When the ocean couldn’t save you anyway.
    I know
    What a breaking heart sounds like;
    It is that deathly quiet
    The moment before the damn breaks.
    It is the gasping breath of a memory dying,
    The desperate plea to keep it together,
    When you’re picking the pieces up off the floor.
    I know what a healing heart is;
    It’s the shape of life after love,
    The reassembled self,
    When the pieces don’t quite look the same but fit together anyway.
    I know..
