Shattered hearts

We have had to live in the dark for so long 
consumed by nothing beautiful but ourselves
we see everything beautiful... but ourselves 

I know
how shattered hearts shimmer the dimmest of light through the cracked pieces and the brightest of light through the same spaces...
I know... 
how you've kept looking for love in the same places
slit open your wrists...
how you’ve looked for love in the wrong places.

We have had to live in the dark for so long 
Reason you approach love closed eye
Cautiously... 
Babysteps...
We’ve been blinded for far too long...
To just dive right back in.
