Small World

My Broken Heart

The world can feel so small sometimes,

and you were the center of my world;

my emotions revolved around you,

and my heart burned to be near you.


I inscribed your name on my mind

like a permanent tattoo,

pigmenting my thoughts

with enduring shades of you.


And now that you're gone,

all I have is the memory of you-

etched but fading over time-

and the world seems even smaller.
