Split in Half
There's beauty in heartbreak
Though you don't see how something so excruciating can be overcome.
A heart severed by love's misfortune, the knife still clenched tightly in her hand.
Such a guilty culprit escapes the clutches of grief.
You turn away
Under the pouring rain your tears are still obvious.
I watch you break before my eyes
Your world shattering among the turmoil
Feel the pain
Acknowledge the way it fuels you
Careful, don't get lost in the wreckage
Let the overwhelming urge to scream rattle your bones
Now Let go
Navigate those feelings in a new direction.
Take this fresh beginning and hold it in your hand.
Healing lives just over the horizon
So dwell in it.
Allow me to be the wandering soul that guides you through the rough edges of life.
