A Poem by Emma Kirchhoff

Honestly, viewer discretion is advised because this is not good at all. Nothing but a really random chain of thoughts that I will probably send out read requests for anyways.

It takes shape as a verb
While heartbroken comes as a adjective
Making it sound like it was in the past
No, I'd rather use the verb this time
Because being heartbroken
Isn't about how your heart has been broken
But rather
How it continues to be broken
Feeling like it will never return to it's whole state
What was it like?
Being whole
It fades from your memory as all you have come to know
Becomes all you have ever known
Fading like you wish the pain could
Until it's nothing but a hopeless memory
But what does hope
to do
with this?
It must be something so profound I fail to see it
Hope can be a noun or a verb, depending on it's surrounding clues
But under the right context
It can have the same ugly head as heartbreak
Because hope
When your heart continues to break
Is like holding a candy
just out of the reach of a small child 
Dangling glasses 
high above someone who needs them
Taunting a cripple 
with their wheelchair 
And it is at this point that hope can take shape as another adjective
