Dead Emotions

He asks me,

How can someone,

Write something,

So astonishing?

How can someone,

Fathom the words,

Framed them in phrases,

That strain at every painful emotion,

The soul felt,

How can someone write such a thing?

All I say was,

Maybe they’re so heartbroken,

That they don’t know,

What to do with all the pain,

They’re carrying in their hearts,

All they can do is,

Pour it out in words,

The heartbreak and all.

He laughed as if,

It is the dumbest thing,

I ever said.

He doesn’t know,

I’m writing about heartbreak too,

One day at a time.
