heartbreak

laurette-s-head-with-a-coffee-cup

for all the bluster and posturing
when an upbeat heart breaks
yet again, mind spins

pain is a live
writhing thing
its really an uphill task

to ride this out
regain an even keel
after all

there is limit
to how many times
a heart can take a beating

then fumble
around
for patching
~
Painting Laurette’s head with a coffee cup is by Henri Matisse
