hello poetry [ two ]

love should never hurt,
but here’s how it will hurt you:
when you give your first love your heart,
they’re going to take it in their hands
and drop it.
and you will be feeling the impact of the fall for months on end.
eventually, it will fade from a constant ache
to a pain that flares up like when someone who had broken a bone in the past feels pain when it storms.
and some days, it will feel like a the rain will never stop
but other days,
it won’t necessarily be sunny but overcast and, more importantly, dry.
-today, it’s overcast.
