Please do not judge us
Crying is for everyone.
Tears fall like raindrops

Hearts break like thin glass.
Big kids cry when their hearts snap
In two. It’s normal.

Sometimes things don’t work
Like we want them to but then
They’re not supposed to

Rules are meant to be broken
Fate is not meant to be sealed
Many glass hearts must be fixed

Before it’s too late.

She was a girl who
Never imagined she could
Be anything but

One of the girls who
Gradually fades into
The background story.

He was a boy who
Never thought he could live up
To the world his dad

Left behind for him
To turn into his very
Own sanctuary.

There was a dog too
And he was the most involved
In their friendship.

She kept coins in the
Pocket of her ripped blue jeans
And always lost them

He kept dreams in his
Black car that he loved dearly
And never used them

The dog knew the boy
Dreamt of owning ripped blue jeans
And losing loose change.

He knew the girl bought
Her dreams with the loose change and
Wished for a black car

In which to store them.

The dog only wanted
A treat in the afternoon
And an owner like the boy

Who cared for all things
With such a passion
Like his black car and

Probably a dog.

The dog did not have
A home he wandered around
Like a bird with no


Like a fish with no


Like a writer with

No pen

Like a human with


To hold them down and
Tell them what not to become

The dog would wander
Cold brown paws on cold pavement
Twinkling brown eyes

Under twinkling
Silvery white stars

Somewhere he would smell
Cooking hot dogs mingled with
The scent of a healed glass heart

And he’d follow it
To a girl sitting in a
Black car full of wishing

Eating a hot dog
And laughing with a kind boy
Who laughs along

With her even though
He knows they are not in love
And will never be

Finally, they think,
A love story with no love
Just two happy friends

Mending their glass hearts
