The Art of a Broken Heart


A symphony pleases the ear
with soothing melodies that charm the imagination
art stirs the soul with symbols from life
philosophy quickens the mind with sublime thoughts
history teaches tales of wisdom
writing freezes experiences on pages for reflection sculpturing gives visible form
to abstract perceptions
theater presents life’s tragedies
enjoyed from a distance.

A broken heart is its own art form
conducting unfinished symphonies of tears falling in despair
painting doubt on the soul’s canvass
pain is it’s philosophy of love
from its history of love denied it counsels against trusting
penning tales of unrelenting agony
sculpting envy in the mind
directing tragedies that cast us in helpless roles.
It has no willing followers to admire its creations
that hang sadly in the gallery of life.
Love if you may, but remember
a broken heart creates no masterpieces.
