Love 228

“I believe a ‘broken heart’   says more about its vessel   than its captain, more about   you than your lover.”

“I believe a ‘broken heart’
says more about its vessel
than its captain, more about
you than your lover.”

But then you would say that,
life, love, ground I stand on,
tree I hang on like a bell,
room I inhabit, cell,
window to the world,
light-source, camera,
gifter of pictures,
message-bird, seeker,
finder, key; you’re more me
than I am myself, and we
are the last of our species,
looking out as though
from a mountain top
over clouds from lightrise
to lightset, seeing, seeing.
