The Heart Breaks

By Jessi Fredeen


the heart breaks

with each failure

each disappointment

each dismissal

each rejection

the heart breaks


the heart mends

with each smile

each acceptance

each life changed

each cheer

the heart mends


oh little heart

how easily you sway

how simple it is to effect you by taking things away

how ‘at the time’ and ‘in the moment’ you live from day to day

oh little heart

when will you learn

there’s danger in this way


the heart breaks

the heart mends

it’s silly now

was silly then

oh little heart, when will you bend

it wears you so to break and mend
