Break it Down

by joetwo

Break it down for me

The game we call love

Down to its essence

Its tiniest particles


Start simply

Note the soft kisses at the start of a long day

Record the passion brought at midnight

Measure the sweet words under bated breath


Look closer

Titrate the rush of the first kiss against life’s long minute

Image the fights and the make-up

Analyse the break-ups and the new possibilities that come after


See the entirety

See the passion and the heartbreak

See the beginning and the end

See it all


Break it down for me

The highs, the lows, the good, the bad

Show me what I know

To play the game is always to win
