Heart of an Addict

Last night,
before I closed my eyes
to sleep

 
my heart said, “I can’t wait
to love myself to another day.”

 
Today,
I woke up and felt my heart
was breaking.

 
“What happened?” I asked it gently.

 
“The same thing that always happens,” it replied.
“You teach me how to love myself by destroying myself
and now I’m breaking.”
