To sew up a broken heart you must feel every pin prick of the needle. Feel the thread slide through, tighten and squeeze the torn pieces together. Sometimes I pull it tighter than it needs to be. Make it pinch more than it should. You can only mend up holes so many times before there's nothing left. Nothing left to sew. It becomes just a wound up ball of string. The more you try to mend... The more fragile it becomes. It rips and tears more easily. With every new patch job. And all the while your trying to make it stronger. Your only making it weaker. Just let it be. You'll either heal. Or bleed out. Either way its better than trying to make something outta nothing. Its better to let fate take its dues. Rather than prolonging the torture.
