Time



Wanted a perfect purebred. Beautiful silver.
Those blue eyes pierce right through
your heart. Not knowing the heart will
melt. You still fall so deeply in love.
Time is not on our side. Your heart aches for
who, yourself or them. Truth of an imperfect
structure that beats and beats destructively.
It is out of our control. There is nothing to
mend a true broken heart.
Still you fall so deeply in love, knowing in
time their hearts are going to break. Is this
worth the tears, and shattered broken pieces
of glass all over the floor around you. You
step in a red pool bleeding.
You then realize it’s not about you. It’s about
time and the journey in between that matters.
Love with all your heart, soul, broken pieces,
and the journey will live forever.
