My Definition

My Broken Heart

I never dared admit to you
that my whole sense of being
was wrapped up in you.

You defined me.
Maybe that’s why I feel so invisible now.

I unraveled at the realization
that my reality was altered.

I will spend the rest of my life
trying to find another thread,
a strand to cling to.

One I and most can surely relate to.
Very well done!
