What is Heart Break?
by Brandon Asemah
We can no longer say hello, hi, or hey
without feeling uncomfortable.
No texts, calls, or emails,
From one another –
For the sake or sanity
We never dated – well except once
Which you claimed to have had fun
– you said, “lets do it again”,
and I had a great time –
But you continuously neglected to make at a second run.
You see – I believe that was our real problem.
Actions that spoke louder than words
Which you never sang, hymned, or even shared
To show what it was – that I could give you.
I’m selfish – but I can admit that.
But my selfishness never deterred me away from your well-being.
All I attempted–was to check on you and your state of mind
Time after time – I would use both my actions and words to speak volumes,
To tell you how I was there for a shoulder, a release, and an even a late night peace.
So what is heartbreak?
or down when – you’re around?
Hitting a left when I see you coming right?
No – because the heartbreak began much longer ago.
It all started –
with a “Hello”
