i feel the color blue when i think of you

what do you do with heartbreak?

what do you do

when heartbreak is your constant state,

when you feel your heart’s presence

always in your chest?

it thumps so hard, you think

it’ll jump right out.

there’s an ache there

that spreads through your bones.

it’s called your body home for so long

it’s almost comforting in its permanence.

after all this time,

you think it knows you better

than even your closest friends.

was there ever a time

when this monster didn’t curl around your creaking bones?

there are moments when you know

this monster shouldn’t feel

so good curled up in your chest.

sometimes you think that it’s

a shield against pain more dangerous.

(you know better, you know now that

it is the pain more dangerous)

there are moments when you don’t know

if you’re sick or if your monster is visiting.

you feel dizzy, nauseous,

sick swirling inside you so fast

you almost gag on it.

is this what love is supposed to feel like?

your monster makes you ill, but you can’t live without it.

without the heartbreak, tearing you up on the insides,

you are free but you’ve never known free before.

what do you do

when heartbreak is your constant state,

when your heart dully aches

for something you’ve never had?

you rip that heartbroken thing right out of your chest.

without it, you are free.
