A guest poetry- “will” by Tarebear the Writer from BOSTON



when you broke
my heart
I thought you
walked away with
the air I breathe
and left my lungs
and motionless.
I thought you
drained my blood
and left my shattered
heart unable to
contract and release
ever again.
I was wrong,
I will breathe on
I will will my heart
to beat on.
I will live on.
I will not let you kill me.
I am in charge of me
I can save me.
When you broke my heart
I thought you took my life
with you when
you left.
But no.
I can fight on
