They say after heartbreak, a haircut
A clean slate for every mistake
But now I’ve no hair left for cutting
And even less heart left to break

Very relatable. After a bad break up of mine, I literally cut nearly all my hair off. Chilling word choice, you have a lot of talent

People now a days don't take relationships serious. They end up hurting people because a relationship isn't important to them. It’s sickening to see people being used. When he says, “And even less heart left to break.” His heart was broken before and doesn't get better as he goes.

Wow, this is so chilling. It's one of the best short poems I've ever read. My favorite line is, "But now I've no hair left for cutting."

Same here. Its an amazing poem, I love it. But I'm not really sure what its saying. I thought maybe it was something about cancer because "no hair left" but than maybe just about love because of the last line.
