Selfie of the century
Photographer’s girlfriend leads him around the world
my brother told me
that only stupid people are happy.
‘if you’re smiling,
you haven’t opened your eyes,’
and all of a sudden,
the grin on my face was wiped away
as i realized that ‘love’ was not
a word he used anymore,
unless it was to answer someone
asking him what had ruined him.
when your heart is broken,
you do not have to see the world
as all rainy days and stormed barricades.
rome did not remain in ruins
when it’s shadowed self fell.
you too can wipe the rubble
from your heart
