More Than a Word

My Broken Heart

I don’t know what love looks like.

I don’t know if I should believe your words
when your actions counter them
like a weight teetering the truth.

Maybe I once knew love
and maybe she was loved
but today it doesn’t feel like that.

Today all I know is that love
is nothing more than a word
that’s abused and misused every day.
