If I never get heartbroken
I would never understand what it feels like to once love and still desire a love long gone.
If we never get depressed, we wouldn’t be able to spin out images of death and angels intertwined, making love together in the 11th heavens.
So, we give ourselves wholly to love,
We set our hearts to sail and watch them get ship wrecked,
So we can write about the storm.
Sometimes, we stay too long in the pain.
