Reserved For You

My Broken Heart

You never once hurt me

until the last day.


You never did anything 

but make me smile

until you ripped me in two.


I wasn't in love with you

quite yet.


You didn't give me

that opportunity.


But this loss 

is felt through my whole body.


My head hurts,

my eyes leak,

my arms shake,

my chest convulses

my heart is completely broken.


I feel like something in me died

and maybe a part of me did.


The part that was yours;

reserved for only you.


And you took it with you

because now that part 

is useless to me.
