Tears no longer stain these cheeks of mine
At one point my cheeks could have been conceived as a river bed
Holding tons of rushing, raging water.
Tears no longer well up in my eyes when the thought of you crosses my mind
No longer do I need to express the pain you caused me through an endless stream of tears
However, this is not to suggest that the pain does not remain deep within my permanently disfigured heart
Forever my heart will remain “under construction” after the way you handled it
After the way you misused my love, my trust, my loyalty!!
And just maybe one day I won’t feel the pain
Maybe one day it won’t be too late,
Someone else will take away all the heartache you have given me
Until that day,
Until that time in my life
I shall walk this earth with a heart littered with fractures,
That will soon creep into drawn out cracks,
Which will then be overwhelmed by the gravity and will shatter!!
My heart soon laid out like a jigsaw puzzle
Only pain staking effort will ever put it back together…
