you can try your hardest to figure it out

you can ask a million questions

and receive a million different answers

you may even access the universal vault of knowledge

but even then, you still wouldn't know

what it's like to have your heart

completely betray your brain

to feel so much that you just might burst

and have it backfire just before it could begin

at first you cry a waterfall of tears

and drown in your sadness

then you explode in anger

a million pieces of you

are scattered all over the floor

your fingers bleed as you pick yourself up

but what once was perfect

is now a hodge-podge of band-aids and patches

then you start to wonder

if you could ever be whole again
