when will i know my heart has healed
when i cannot remember the moment he broke it?
and when will i step out of the shroud of bitterness and resentment
when i cannot remember a time when i did not call it home?
when will my soul run away from him
and reunite withe me?
when will my heart be where it once was...
in my chest, unbroken, at peace?
when will i forget the pain he has caused me
when every waking moment is worse than the last?
and when will i get over the absence of his face
when his scent is what keeps me breathing, so fast?
when will my soul run away from him
and reunite with me?
and when will my heart be where it once was...
in my chest, unbroken, at peace?


The author's comments:
i wrote this after reading a story about a woman who hires an assassin to kill her husband after he sleeps with the assassin. I thought, what pain she must feel o do such a thing, inducing this poem. The story was fictional.
