At some point you’ve got to pick up the pieces of a broken heart

And put them back together

Hearts don’t work like they should

With the sum of their parts

Torn asunder as such

No, they won’t. 

Nor can you place them in a blender and mix it all back together at the push of a button.

Hearts don’t work like that.

It’s pain staking work putting a heart back together, you’ve got to sew it, stitch by stitch, moment by moment, careful not to tear it again, or it’ll all fall apart.

Meticulous attention must be paid it

And by and by, one piece at a time

You’ll find there’s no greater work nor greater reward than this labor of love. For when the last suture’s sewn a nurtured home beats much better than it did before.
