dear you,

you and your broken heart,
i miss you dearly
and i hope youre doing fine.
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
i get that you run from things
that youre afraid to lose
but in running
arent you losing them
faster?
 
dear you, 
you and your broken heart,
i hope someday you can smile
and be selfish without shame and
those pieces inside you are golden
and i hope you find
what youre looking
for. 
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart, 
i know that im too young for 
the idea of fate, things like strings, 
but i met you and thats undeniable
and maybe this was meant
to be something and if not
tragic, maybe
beautiful. 
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
its in one ear and out the other,
its no different for anyone, words
slipping away from you
like water and i
get it. i
get it and i wish neither of us
got it. 
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
the sky and the salt know your name
because you forget anyone else when 
you begin to
fall. 
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
you tell me that you break, there are
different ways you break and sometimes 
i can see it and it is horrible to watch, this earthquake
that eats you from the
inside and i 
can only
watch. 
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
there are these days where nothing is
as it is and everything is exactly as said, 
it is as it is and it is as it 
isnt. 
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
i write you poems cloaked in licorice,
black like the night sky, and maybe my poetry is
not the lights but the 
backdrop. 
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
i know that you dont like to break hearts
but they fall to the floor for you and 
it isnt your fault for not watching every step
because who lives with their
eyes to the ground?
 
dear you,
you and your broken heart,
are you and your heart the same?
or are you separate, are you different
yous, different multitudes?
you contain
multitudes. 
 
dear you, 
you and your broken heart,
i love you dearly and i love you infinitously
and i love you with words that do not exist and
i love to love the love that i love you with and
i love you,
you and your
broken heart. 
 
dear you,
you and your beautiful heart, 
i hope one day 
your heart remembers its worth
and it is 
no longer
broken
