Heartbreak
Becomes Daybreak

It’s like a failing heartbeat
A chest that collapses in on itself
A heavy rock
That falls out from under you
Crumbles like an avalanche into the depths of the night
And you can’t catch your breath
The part of you that pumps blood and life
Through your whole body
Beats so hard and thick it makes you sick
Beats like a beast wanting to take your life
It feels like it was ripped right out of you
Like a gutted piece of fruit
The core that kept you together
Now a rotted target for hungry prey
It’s a fiery hurt that boils blood
A scalding pain you cannot possibly comprehend
Unless you have been it’s victim
Until you have been broken into shards like glass
Until you think every breath is your last
Every spark is now ash
But oh
Heartbreak is always in the past
That massive organ is so mysteriously brave
It is never still
It moves to move you
It lives to heal
Just like the wounds of your skin
You are powerful from within
Be kind to yourself and patient with your path
For it knows it’s strength
It knows the changes of seasons and the cycles of night
It will grow stronger and overflow undiscovered
Wonders of love
Love will seep through your pores and open new doors
You will glow from inside and rise up to light up the whole world

Your Eyes
Are No Exception

I meant every word I said
And every tear that fled
I never meant to make you cry
The beauty may seem over
What would it do to hold her
I know it’s on your mind
Love
You will always matter
Love may seem to shatter
But my love
Will always flow
You should know
You should know
Who really knows what it is
We all know love exists
Your eyes are no exception
You own the deepest part
Of this stupid breaking heart
That cannot find direction
Love
You will always matter
Love may seem to shatter
But my love
Will always flow
You should know
You should know
Don’t walk away

When
Love Hurts

It is about moving on when unable to move
About holding on to yourself while letting go of all you know
About setting free and releasing fears
About closing doors to unlock hidden explorations
About leaving denial and choosing survival
About confronting fears that lead to change
About growth
About everything being ok
About everyone being where they need to be
About looking back and knowing this was what needed to happen
And now you you have made the space
For the love you truly deserve

Changing Form
Is A Good Thing

When you find you heart in the ashes
You know it got burned up
And pieces flew away in the wind
But it did not cease to exist
It only changed form
It is now reborn

Thank You
For Your
Unstable Love

Thank you
For your unstable love
For as you were never sure
And I got swept in your tornados
I had to learn how to get back to stable ground
All on my own
I came out learning how to love
And how to truly love myself

Spread
The Word

How many hearts
Fall between the cracks
Because they didn’t realize
They could just step over it
To find a whole new world
Awaiting on the other side
