This heart is a shrapnel bomb
The first spark can set it off
Sudden tides of emotion swell
It doesn't usually end so well

For every love I leave behind
Pebbles on the path, relics of the past
To touch with a tip of my finger
There's a little piece of me that lingers

Like the stars in a constellation
Tell their stories in weird patterns
My little heartbreaks they shine
Scattered across the night sky

Bite-sized to swallow
Sometimes I wonder how my chest's not hollow
Tiny bruises like bee stings
I've been a hive for these things

Another tear in the fabric
Another patch in the patchwork
I've become the seamstress who
Can have a drink and thread her needle too
