• love quote poetry Broken heart Andrea Gibson heart-ofastallion •

I’m never gonna wait

that extra twenty minutes

to text you back,

and I’m never gonna play

hard to get

when I know your life

has been hard enough already.

When we all know everyone’s life

has been hard enough already

it’s hard to watch

the game we make of love,

like everyone’s playing checkers

with their scars,

saying checkmate

whenever they get out

without a broken heart.

Just to be clear

I don’t want to get out

without a broken heart.

I intend to leave this life

so shattered

there’s gonna have to be

a thousand separate heavens

for all of my flying parts.

You were my favourite poem and I’d read you every night knowing I might never understand every word.
I’d stand in the shadows of your heart and tell you I’m not afraid of your dark.
If love did not exist, I would be so goddamn sane.
If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time. And two l...
Everyone’s chest is a living room wall with awkwardly placed photographs hiding fist-sized holes.
Say this is what the pain made of you: an open open open road. An avalanche of ‘feel it all’. Don’t let anyone ever tel...
