When it comes to love
No one gets out unscathed
And yet we never stop chasing it
Looking for the one
Perhaps we are just masochists
Looking to be hurt
Or maybe we are unrealistic optimists
Hoping this time will be better than the last
But it never is
It never gets better
The wounds heal
But the scars remain
Covering our hearts
And eventually our souls
Leaving behind a trail of jilted lovers
We move on to the next one
For the first time in maybe forever, I actually like this title “Tales Of A Broken Heart.” It started out with some wack titles but eventually I got to one I liked. I think I always write better when I’m sleep deprived for some reason. I guess I should be a grateful insomniac. As for the poem, I guess you can tell I’m not really a romantic lol. I don’t believe in soulmates because it’s crazy to think there is just one person out there for you. I think sometimes you meet someone and if you both try hard enough your relationship works. If not, it doesn’t. Most don’t. That’s just the way it is. “Tales Of A Broken Heart” was inspired by todays #vss365 prompt which was “unscathed.” Let me know what you think of the poem in the comments below.
