“Heartbreak Is A Consequence Of Love”

Heartbreak, they proclaim,
Is the ultimate cost of love
And of remaining alive;
Thus, in as much
As it entails constant pain
And a few strangled cries at night,
You elect to submit yourself
To the rudimentary cycles
Of heart bruises and gashes–
Even when it eventually kills you
To stay in the shadows,
Hopefully awaiting
That precious trickle of love.
