Tale of a Broken Heart that isn't all Broken
He killed me.
No, he is killing me.

With every kind word about *her* he stabs a knife into mine. 

He mustn't know. 

I put on a happy face. A smile that is fake transparent.

He mustn't know how he is killing me.

Perhaps a portent of the coming cold,
When the heavy hand of an icy winter

Making way for the jonquils proud display.

MISSING

So, the saying is truer
“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”
When we’ve fallen as lovers
We can’t look aback as a loner
Time clocks would seem slower
Consider every beat by the hour
So precious you are
We long to be together
Distance had become longer
Communication gap...Read More
