I wish heartbreak was fatal

I wish heartbreak was fatal
like a gunshot
or puffer fish.

I wish a doctor would enter the room
and say, ‘I’m sorry, you were
too sad for too long.  There’s nothing we can do.  You’ve got six weeks.”

I only need a day.

I wish heartbreak killed you
without warning like a drunk driver
or a falling piano.

I don’t want this burden, this grief.

It’s a tragedy when everyone lives.

    Heartbreak is sometimes fatal. How many stories have you read where the man or woman or whoever can’t stand the break up and kills the ex, the kids, themselves, etc. But for non-violent types like us heartbreak is like dying but you’re still alive and suffering like a cancer patient. Or something along those lines.

    I have agreed with that many times before. Nothing sucks quite like having your heart broken. With me, I found that eventually, it does get easier. It never goes away 100% until that person comes along that makes you forget about it. And they will come.
