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
