Heartbreak

Let it happen. 

Let her rip open 

your ribs and sternum.  

Pour the whiskey down  

her throat.  

She can take 

the hits. 

Withstand  

the pummel.  

This muscle  

will not 

fail you. 

It will sober 

and continue. 

Beat and pump 

blood through your veins. 

You are purpose. 

Purpose that 

will break 

and heal 

and find 

love again. 

Your heart. 

Your heart 

will fight for you.
