Welcome back to Tuesday's Takeaways!
This week our Top Quotes are about heartbreak, but we've chosen to highlight these particular poems because they don't just describe the hurting that comes with heartbreak, they also describe the healing. One the left side we have the pain, and on the right side (from that same poem) we show you that it will get better.
There was once a time that I thought you loved me, Monday morning, and I'm thinking
but those plants have grown for another, about how wonderful it is
and this is something I learned to make peace with. to not love you anymore,
Monday morning, and I’m trying to convince myself and it’s so strange because
that I never wanted those flowers in the first place, I had spent so much time wondering
but I’ve never been good at lying what love would be like
and I won’t start now. in the first place
-Maya Garcia, The Lung Flowers

Kneeling on my bedroom floor to play anymore
52 pickup with my heart. It's another thing to look you in your
A few cards were stuck to the bottom eyes
of your Stan Smiths, In those beautiful brown eyes and say:
And as you left, I could do nothing but “I don’t long for you at 3:14 a.m.
watch you step on them. in my empty bed anymore."
-Miles Mercer, 3:14 AM
...what they don’t tell you is But heartbreak has
that it’ll come at you in waves. a pattern that was specifically designed by your ex-lover...
They don’t tell you that your heart will and as they broke you apart over and over again
break and ache at the most random times. parts of you died… Instead, they fill your head but when you finally left,
with thoughts of heartbreak happening only once. better parts came alive.
-Kiara Marie Reyes, Healing
