Advice For the Heartbroken

Burn your pictures now

While there’s still rage in your heart

Or they’ll end up on a shelf in a box

In your closet you can’t look in anymore.

Because the hate fades

And it won’t insulate you from the ash of the flames


The joy fades too

Once found in old memories

You have to let go to live free.

But the best advice is that

There is no advice,

No google pages or “experienced” friend

I am your experienced friend

You’re going through where I’ve already been

And I have next to nothing for you

The only thing I have to say

Is to keep living.

There’s no secret

No special healing potion.

Stay alive

Death means demons win

Don’t let them defeat you

If you can stay alive,

You will smile again.
