she told him life was ugly,
that it was harsh and cold and cruel.
she said to look for beauty in this world
simply meant he was a fool.
she told him nothing really mattered,
that the world had gone to hell.
she said even if she didn't break his heart,
it would be broken by someone else.
she shattered him and walked away,
and he never saw her again.
but he kept close to his broken heart
the lessons she taught him.
and when he met someone new,
he knew exactly what to say.
he told her life was made of magic
and there was beauty in each day.
he decided he would share happiness
with her right from the start,
for he knew that only you can choose
how to give away a broken heart.
Ps: Please understand I may be a bit slow in getting back to you as I'm either about to have a baby//currently having a baby//have just had a baby. I wanted to keep things going on my blog, but it may take a bit to get back into the swing of things since I'm, you know, bringing a human into the world and all. xo
