Heartbreak comes
from within, not without

Heartbreak comes
from a selfish love
when our expectations
are mentally imposed on another

Heartbreak comes
not from loving someone
but from needing that love in return

Heartbreak comes
not unexpected
in hindsight, you saw it
on the horizon,
and blindly embraced the pain

Heartbreak comes
from within,
the ache radiates from the centre
and spreads through every nerve and fibre

Heartbreak comes
and cannot be stopped
until you learn to love
without expectations

Heartbreak comes
for each of us
and being human,
our hearts will always break
