lovelessness stains all forsaken hearts
scheming its way to every soul
sipping into all motives
broken hearts are selfish
by flaw or design
for what they lost
to cleanse all spite
and sweeten what’s sour
to paint over each stain
till tastes of desire thicken
they say broken hearts seldom mend
when they do, it takes a special love

In this case, the time needed to heal a broken heart. I hope you enjoy this.
