i heard her say there are
millions of people in the world with
broken hearts, and they survive

well what about the ones that don't?

what about the ones that crack right through
& end up holding onto themselves by the skin
of their pearly whites?

(and are you happy now? do you have a girl? have a kid? do you sleep at night? i've said sorry a thousand times, but i guess it doesn't count when it's in my head)

I'm still stunned by this stanza. Especially because you didn't use the word "teeth"
