Aw thanks! You’re so sweet :)
Where in the world are you?
Great Lake Swimmers
and got a twitter.
I once felt my heart rip from my chest
and remove itself from my within breast.
I felt it cracking,
as you stopped your crying and steadied your breathing
It was then that I knew you were really leaving.
It sowed itself upon my sleeve,
and showed a vulnerability to all who could see.
It stayed there, as though I were wearing an irremovable shirt,
I had been branded by an unforgivable hurt.
I worried about it being there,
But no matter how hard I tried,
I couldn’t quite get myself to care.
People could see it, I saw their pitiful stares
I don’t think they knew that I had no choice in what to wear.
There was only one person who could break the threads,
who could finally put my heart to rest.
I thought it was you, the person who had the key,
but after a long time of wishing and waiting,
I realized that person was actually me.
So I tore at my sleeve until it released
what should have been mine all along,
I stitched the two halves back together,
and put my heart back where it belonged.
