The dream and the missing piece.

He called me today.

And we said lots of things.

He told me he was sorry he hurt me,

And it only made me love his heart more.

I know the words were genuinely spoken.

I told him that I understood. Because I do.

Water flowed from my eyes while I pictured

– a child – with a big imagination

trying to put parts of their toys together to build something they could see in their mind’s eye.

They had the vision,

But not the components.

Nothing fit.

Some pieces were missing.

Sometimes you have the dream

But not the elements necessary to bring it into reality,

And this is one of those times.

One does not run on a broken leg,

And one does not love

With a broken heart.

He told me he was sorry he hurt me

And it only made me love his heart more.
