heart break. for jasmine and sam

who made up that term?
so apropos
it really feels that way sometimes
like little shards
like the small pink and white china bunny
that cracked into lots of pieces

but when my children touch me
i can feel their fingers picking up every single tiny dangerous piece
and putting them back together
so they almost fit

  3. You wrote exactly what I feel. If anything in the world has ever helped heal me, it is my son.
