They Who Were Broken

To the man who couldn’t love,

she determinedly went after.

Eager to make him turn his gaze

and to mould his heart tender.



She burned herself out mending

his crooked ideals of affection;

and wrangled him to a literary war

to which neither reached a comprehension.


One day, he finally spoke his first words of devotion

and launched his plan of courtly love, fueled with ambition.

Yet as soon as they were uttered, something awoken:

“Though I brought him here, there is no obligation..”


Crushed, the man vowed once more

to never give in to this unspeakable notion.

And she learnt that she liked to love a thing

only when it is broken.
