she asked the most obvious question,
"will he break my heart?"
with a heavy conscience i had to be honest,
"of course he will.
he'll break your heart a millon times.
that scares us.
he'll break it, and also will the next guy.
after a few inches of snow the heart begins to grow fonder of the body it is in.
and after a few years it's plain simple that no one
not even him,
will break your heart."
"and how do i do this?"
"it's not easy,
no it's not.
you gather yourself together
and you suffer.
you lie awake at night thinking about him
(believing he is sleeping like a baby)
and pretend you don't have feelings.
you fake it till you make it,
then it's all a question of practice.
or maybe you're lucky and you don't care
about small modern things
like read reciepts or last seens
or maybe cryptic facebook statuses
but those are strong people and hard to find.
we are not strong
and we are not good.
sometimes heartbreak has got nothing to do with the evil within.
it goes beyond it."
