Ode to Break-up©

Before word: No matter how it happens, breaking up is hard to do. But staying when it’s over is harder, more harmful and unwise. Self care is essential.

I think Kahlil Gibran said it best: “Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls”.


heart-eyes blinded by love
masqueraded like roses
supple red petal flesh
shriveled edges
dried blood-stained
fragile to the touch
breaking


breaking up
lives entangled separating
heart from heart disconnecting
intensity like physical cut detaching
like heart cardiac arresting
breaking


breaking out
fluid like blood of emotions discharging
toxicity free flowing
hurt pain regrets emptying
tears of relief cleansing
breaking


breaking through
surrendering
exhaling
accepting
embracing
new beginning
