Leaving

poetry






sunset train

How is a broken heart so heavy?

For surely separate segments
of this valentined organ
weigh no more apart than when together.

Yet they sit differently in the chest.
Like a swallowed bowling ball,
tethered to an anchor
of everything ever lost.

Leaving is so painful, but the brokenness heals into more space. The breaking lets the heart grow bigger.

Thank you, beloved. That is good for me to hold. I miss you!
