The Broken Heart

My heart is broken,


I gave too much,

I didn’t realise that giving too much would be a crime,

But I stopped feeling,

I stopped laughing around you,

I felt on edge,

You spoke down to me,

And I let you,

Because I believed I loved you,

And then you would make me apologise,

Control,

What is it?

How do we move away from it?

Words, body language,

Signposted actions,

Dissonance,

Communication,

Prejudice,

Occupation,

Personality,

Fluidity,

Lost in between the lines,

I was not strong,

Actually, I was not pragmatic,

This business transaction is now over,

It’s concluded,

Who is making the loss now?

Security,

Love,

Health,

Desire,

Let’s not keep up the pretence’s anymore,

Hate,

Conviction,

The rotten apple,

The rotten fruit,

Old dead flesh hanging on the line,

Did I this to you?

Did you do this to me?

Mistakes,

Disharmony,

Reverberations,

Dishonesty,

I dance to the music in my head,

Rumba, samba, flamenco,

Can you do the steps?

But all you do is step on my toes,

I am the guilty party,

I am the respondent,

You are the petitioner,

But we see the truth,

Between the fake lines,

Show me your real face,

You cannot,

You don’t know how,

So, I tread this path,

In knowledge,

In acknowledgement,

In resilience,.

Without expectation and prejudice.

As, the writing is on the wall
