With Enough Tape

Everyone has told me

So many times

That I will be able to get over love

That with enough tape

I will be able to clean up this broken heart.

But I think it’s the opposite

I think with enough tape

You can pretend to be normal

With enough tape

You can paint over the holes in the wall

With enough tape

Someone else can love you

But loving them back is impossible

Because you always have cracks where the loves leaks out

And disappears

    Perhaps what we need is not tape
    but a transplant
    and is that not what love is?
    two become one
    two hearts beat
    so perhaps, we don’t need to be whole
    who ever loved something that wasn’t
    or scarred
    or beat
    or a little bit hopeless
    or terrified
    because love is not perfect
    it’s messy and broken
    just like
    so put away your tape, love
    it’s not needed
