Bruises heal quickly,
But hearts are slow to mend.
The slowest healing hearts of all
Are those of broken friends.
Friends left by the wayside,
Making way for someone new,
Or betrayed by broken promises,
Or words that weren’t quite true.
The healing of these broken heats
Is long and pathed with pain.
And they’re fragile, so once broken once,
They’re not hard to break again.
