A Broken Heart (Prose) - Poem by Heather Burns

When you left my heart
was broken
tiny pieces were scattered
everywhere
my search to find and
repair the damage began

I grew very excited for
in my search
thinking I had finally
gathered all the pieces
together
The task trying to attach
each piece in the proper

place so it would look
as if nothing ever
happened

No one would ever know
the damage that had been
done. I was almost finished

when realizing a tiny piece
was still missing

searching everywhere in
the darkest corners but
it had vanished. I finally
came to understand a broken

heart will never be as it
once was
a broken heart will always

remember.
