heartbreak warfare.

i wrote this yesterday before. before. before.

she went home one friday after work
at 5:00 o'clock on the dot
she laid down in her bed
and never got up again

she died of pure heart ache
never opened her eyes to cry again
never opened her mouth to sigh again
never opened her arms to love again

her heart simply quit beating
quit pumping
quit loving
she gave it away one too many times

her heart couldn't take it anymore
it betrayed her
it threw up its hands and waved the white flag
and screamed it is done

with this final declaration it stopped
time stopped
blood stopped
breath stopped
life stopped
and her wounded tired body finally had rest
