Pulling at the Seams

The thing about love

Is that maybe it can only coexist with pain

One can’t be without the other

Because they are polar opposites

And together they make the other real

Like tension and release

Ups and downs

Or beginnings and ends

The only problem is people don’t talk about it

No one says how it hurts while you’re in love

How your heart breaks when you’re apart

And you don’t always have enough time together

To sew the pieces back the way they were

Before you start to pull at the seams once again

Ripping slowly but steadily

Until finally

They simply

Snap.
