Collage of Brokenness

It's interesting
how you take on traits
from previous lovers.


They become part of you
to take into the next relationship.


We project character qualities
from people in our past
to those we meet in our future.


Each ex-lover becomes

a piece in the collage
of our brokenness.


Every relationship
affects who you become,
altering your personality.


We are the byproduct

of a string of lost loves.
