Synergy

My heart broke

A while ago

By someone you

Didn’t know

 

She made sure

It was all shattered

So that nobody could come

And break me better

 

She even had

A part of my spine

Cut-out

For me to remember.

 

Then, I knew another

Who came and took my heart

And reminded me

Of who I was

 

Now I know that they are

Love, and the other was

Many lessons, dressed-up

In a trenchcoat.

 

I wonder, now

I’ve I’ll ever be

Unbothered, or if I’ll

Always be shattered

 

I’ve been glued

I still feel

Every line, ever groove

I am still broken, just

Performing, whole

 

I love her

With a kind of love

Our ancestors

Wrote on caves

 

I used to feel

Broken, uneasy, out-of-place

Now I feel

Broken-in, tested, tried and true

 

Now, I suppose

I will have to risk

Failure, some more

Until our love spans heaven–

Nature, eternity–

Fables written into the stars

 

Now, I suppose

I have to risk

Falling in love with you

I’m not sure if I can shatter

And be pieced back together, again.

 

Now, I wonder

If we aren’t just

Star-crossed lovers, staring up at

Our eternity together, wondering

How we could stay forever

Immortalized by our synergy
