“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”- Adele


Inspirational quotes

Spring to life

Post break-up

Plastered on status updates

They proliferate

Like the nuclear arms race

Stacking up

On either side

There are no- more- conversations

Just these quotes that build up

Higher and higher and higher

O’ the moral high ground !!!!!

Deterrent measures

Preventing the outbreak of the war of hearts

Not too dissimilar

To nuclear weapons

Best avoided

Best left rotting with their delivery systems

Just like all those things

That never got said

Contaminating peace- of- mind

Ever the threat of an explosion
