Irony

Pretty flowers Grow from broken hearts Stronger bonds Are made from Mended friendships I miss our gentle intimacy But I’ve missed our laughter more And maybe I can’t touch you anymore But at least we can learn to talk like we did before It’s silly to say, but A kind of vibrancy arose From this misguided … More Irony
