Read Poem: Elegant Heartbreak, by Rebecca Lunn

When I think about you my heart feels so full
My body has this rush of pure euphoric bliss

I’ve never stopped chasing that high you introduced to me

The come down, the twinge in my heart when the high falters, sheer anguish explodes

My eyes well
I rest my hand on my heart
I lose my breath

Tears fall from my eyes
My heart skips a beat
The despair rises within me
I embrace the pain

Then I do it all over again…

I’d rather endure the highs for a moment and let the heartbreak consume me
Then forget how I felt with you

I hope in the shadows of your dark… your soul ignites and eventually you desire to nurture the flowers in the darkest parts of you

Ciao, bello
