Is it better to have loved and lost??? Really?

It’s hard to articulate what I found but I will try. In the whole of human experience we often want the most perfect, most true experience. We look for the rainbowed prism of beauty in everything trying find the infinite happiness that escapes us. I walk daily finding mirrors reflecting the world they want to see. I find transparent glass as blunt and honest just existing as it stands. But the most of what I find, the thing that intrigues me most are the broken. Caution says I should steer clear but the universe drags me like gravity to the rubble of things failed and in ruin. I bandage my fingers and gird my resolve and sift through what remains. I couldn’t tell you what I was looking for until the other day I found it. She warned me she was broken and I wasn’t afraid cause I am too. She told me every single thing and showed me her sharp edges. It’s the truth in pain that I’m in love with. Her honesty and her helpless abandon painted her shards a myriad of colors and I could add my blood to it. I fell in love with this beautiful thing that could not love me back. She was a broken soul that had reformed itself amongst the bits of rubble in life and formed a wondrous mosaic. I’m not looking for perfect or to fix what went wrong. The past is there untouchable by the time that took its place. All I can hope for is to mix my colors with hers, compliment her weakness with my strength and mine with hers. But like most I’m left to admire my bloody fingers and broken heart. She wants the world to see the beauty only I can and I want it for her too, so I let her go. I’ll wait in the cold slumber of my new trauma for her to hopefully see my colors, my broken pieces, or for them to fade and with them my existence in the fog and mist.
