my hands drip sanguinely
with the scarlet blood
of all the hearts
i’ve broken over the years

but i wonder how
many more pairs of hands
drip with the blood
of my broken heart

I guess it does. I hadn't thought about it that way. Thank you for commenting, TheDuchess.

It's so raw...I like it. I've broken someone's heart and had my heart broken. Does having your heart broken cancel out your breaking of someone else's heart?

It is cynical. I was so upset when I wrote this. (By the way, I haven't broken anyone's heart. At least, I think so. Dating-wise, no.) Anywho, thank you. I appreciate the zealous love for this poem, HazelGrace.
