Take Care (Please)

Take care when you break my heart
shelter it with kindness
rip it apart in one fell swoop
so the pain can abate.
Ignore the tears streaming from my eyes
the tremble of my lip
embrace me once
and turn to go
for I cannot take this.
Where once I smiled and played
now I force myself
to walk each day
as though there was reason
as though there was hope.
Take care when you break my heart
for I know no way forward
from the dance,
from the kiss.
With each passing day
my life will heal
my tears will cease to fall
but still there will be a hole
where your tenderness is missing.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
