    this is what happens when one fails at love
    i know what you do when you lose your person

    you shatter—

    plainly and without need for metaphors
    because what better way is there of saying

    that the eyes refuse to open
    knowing that they won’t find what they seek

    that the hands deny to be the hands
    if they cannot be intertwined with his

    that the body feels empty without
    embracing the warmth of the other beside it

    that the heart could not survive
    the absence of the half it desires to beat for
