Don’t make me laugh
A soul cannot break unless you refuse to bend
Love is only a whisper in the roaring river of possability
You say you jumped from that cliff?
Did you think you could fly
On the wind of weightless words?
Did you never learn the topography of another
Requires four wheel drive to navigate?
Were you just going to stroll in here
Plant a flag that says “MINE” because
Nobody else had done so?
A lack of face reflected in my heart
So you thought I needed someone there
Like I would not be able to complete myself
As if I needed the crutch of sympathy
Read my poetry so now you’ve got me figured?
So the fire of my spirit didn’t burn you?
Doesn’t mean you’re fire proof
No, hearts cannot be broken
One person cannot know another
I’ve had friends for years who don’t know the color of my iris
But maybe a friend is what you need
A sharp poke in the ego and a bit of perspective
Someone to help you drink a few
Ruminate on those lessons other woman have taught you
I’ll volunteer to be a partner in your crime
Sit in the shade of you and listen to your rustling
Just don’t play those games of the subtle and the sly
Like I won’t hear what you mean
When you don’t say what you mean
Because I am a wizard of page and pen
I see layers beneath layers while you stand there blind
Hearts cannot be broken
They can be given to the wrong person
Who abuses it, disregards it’s worth, throws it away
Or someone who keeps it in a secret place
Coveting that beautiful prize
Withholding the chance for love with another
In the echos of their smile
But you can never break a heart
Because it is a muscle
That my be torn and bruised
Aching with intensity
Sundered or bleeding
