Denslow's_Humpty_Dumpty_pg_5Okay, so my heart is broken

and I’m not sure why.

What I know instead is

that looking back won’t fix it.

Humpty-Dumpty made that clear

so very long ago.

 

heart brokenOkay, so my heart is broken

and here’s why: expectations

and dreams are now

in the past and

cannot come true,

or they’re still running ahead

and I’m running out of breath.

 

overthinkOkay, so my heart is broken

and I’m not the only one in pain.

That’s not much to hang onto,

but it’s better than being alone,

or am I alone anyway and that’s

the lesson I have to learn

again and again?

 

repeat 1Okay, so my heart is broken

and saying it again and again

is foolish and not completely

true anyway.

 

Okay, so my

heart is

badly bruised and

not broken after all.

 

Okay.

Okay.

I see.

I see.

 

Normal_Heart_BeatMy

heart

is

still

beat-

ing

and

that

is

good.

 

O

kay.

  1. Dear Frank,
    I liked seeing you with your surfboard… mine is currently on the DL recovering at Kennedy after learning what 3-5+ means! I’d love to catch up as I too have a “broken heart”, broken eye…but I have found Hope!
