The Real Reason Broken Hearts Crave Ben & Jerry's

December 29, 2008
Oh, ****.
There goes my heart again.
Could you please pass the broom?
And if you find the time,
I’d love some marshmallows
and soft-serve scoops
to glue this mess together -
because right now, it looks a little
like Humpty Dumpty
(though I know
I’m too old for fairy tales:
yet I’m still so in love
with Prince (un)Charming).
I’ll make do
with Prince Choc’late Chip
and some told-y’-so advice
from my best friend
(which I already knew),
thanks very much.

I like this! I like the perspective you take on, and the personality you give your words was enjoyable to read. You comment saying what the title is supposed to be, but I think I like it the way it is! But that's just my opinion.
