A circle, a bent heart

A circle

Is a bent heart

Pulled and torn

Ripped at center

Hole gaping

With jagged edges

-

Only it

Knows the pain

  4. Brief, but potently writ...an interesting image, that set me thinking. Brings new meaning to the old phrase "It all comes full circle"...so it is with the pain of a broken heart.
