your heart is such a beautiful maze, a factory of mechanical parts
assembled in order and in a most timely fashion.
but every once in a while,
an unforeseen error comes through the line
and shakes up the process,
leaving bits and pieces scattered
while you try and salvage what is left.
if only you would realize
how imperfect love really is–a blazing trail of mistakes and blunders,
a chaotic reenactment of how the universe was created
and that order wasn’t meant to be restored
inside such complicated beings
such as the ones we are.
