When the Negative Outweighs the Positive

Nursing heartbreak is a compassionate undertaking
not to be confused by legal entanglement,
each has their own place in matters of fact

Practiced acrobats know the ropes
as well as the best ways to cope, breaking invisible bonds,
far from romanticizing a love gone wrong

Friends have a bit-part in the healing process
with physical & emotional concern & support,
filling an emptiness with their love of a different sort
