His announcement caught her unawares

Like a mean uppercut under her chin

She couldn’t have ducked to save her heart

From breaking into a million shards

But her pride couldn’t let him see

How devastated and distressed she was

She straightened her spine of steel

And bid him a final goodbye

With an empty feeling slid on the cold floor

Faced with the onerous task of

Collecting all the broken pieces

Of the thing called heart.
