In heartbreak

You barely exist right now
You are
Your words soft
And weightless, floating up 
Somewhere less painful as 
Soon as they escape your mouth

And every muscle on your 
Face says you wish you could
Join them.
Float and be nothing. Silent
and no longer attached, no longer
Flinching at every beat of some one
Else's heart.

I wish I could help you. Float you
With helium balloons (the ones we'll walk
Round the zoo for your sister's babyshower

Only lightly tied to the earth
In heavenspace, safe
For the light
And the healing
