clockwork hearts [poem]

image

a broken heart is what changes people
forges their weaknesses into a stronger alloy
their mistakes becoming a better shield
they learn how to walk away
how to say no and mean it
how to see trouble coming before it gets here
they become their own gatekeeper
guarding the intricate gears of their
reconstructed love
no one will throw a wrench into their
clockwork hearts
and watch them break again
they’ve been sure to change too much for that
