Learning Curve

Learned so much from you
how to soar
and how to crash
happy beginnings
and bitter ends
how to love and hate
and feel hollow inside
learned that a heart doesn't shatter
it cracks and fractures along the way
that even messy, bloody endings
can begin so sweet
you taught me to laugh while making love
what making love really meant
then icy silences
and retreating from my touch
the empty, frigid side of the bed
I wish I could remember just the hurts
getting over you would be easier
but the good are so connected
leaving soft spots
that hurt the worst
good and bad
you were mine
for awhile
and I was yours
now all that's left is the aftermath

  2. So much truth and real life here. I really like "learned that a heart doesn't shatter". Everytime we learn something that valuable, it makes us stronger.
