I've been ripped in two by heartbreak before
and this is quite different.

I am heartswellingly sad
my chest is full
of you
and my brain laughs maliciously
and pokes it
just to make me wince.

(I think of the animal cell placed in pure distilled water. It drinks and it drinks and it drinks until it bursts.)

I need some salt.
NaPoWriMo - Day Seven.

How lucky it is that I have silly personal dramas right over the time of NaPo! It's good inspiration, at least.

The first thing I thought of was the song "Breath" by Breaking Benjamin when I read the title and first line. It's a very poignant song. Anyway, the hurt radiates off the page with this one. I hope it heals soon. :hug:

Ooh, I absolutely love that song! I'm honoured you associated it with my poetry :XD: Thanks for the comment and the condolences (that seems like the wrong word, people only say that when people died and no one's died.).

:D It's a great song from a wonderful group. Perhaps a better word would be sympathies?

Breaking Benjamin are the best! Haha. And yes. Sympathies is a better word, thank you.
