words i've written about boys who broke my heart

excerpts from poems and songs, in the past year. (inspired by @catherinepowell)
  1. When I smile, you can see the fractures from that one time life knocked me out of my bones. (Sometimes, my dreams play the soundtrack of those bones breaking back in to place)
    june, 2015 (this isn't the poem we were both hoping for, part i)
  2. If you place my heart under a microscope, you'll see that it has been broken less by other people's hearts, and more by airport lounges and falling leaves.
    july, 2015 (this isn't the poem we were both hoping for, part ii)
  3. You broke me like a promise.
    august, 2015 (the song i'll never write you, part i)
  4. The moon was so full, it convinced me nothing could be empty for too long.
    november 2015 (from when we were still happy)
  5. Somewhere in my body - perhaps in the marrow of my bones - I still feel your absence.
    january, 2016 (the song i'll never write you, part ii)
  6. One day, it will no longer hurt. One day, I will breathe in and it won't feel like a chore, but a like a prayer.
    january, 2016 (this isn't the poem we were both hoping for, part iii)
  7. Didn't someone teach you? It's rude to say, "I love you" with a mouth full of lies.
    february, 2016 (noah)
  8. Do not underestimate my reckless caution.
    february, 2016 (unwritten song)
