“I’m not the only kid who grew up this way. Surrounded by you to say that rhyme about sticks and stones as if broken bones hurt worse than the names we were called and we got called them all. So we grew up believing that no would ever fall in love with us; that we’d be lonely forever. That we’d never meet someone that would make us feel like the sun was something they built for us in their tool-shed. So broken heart stings bled the blues and we tried to empty ourselves so we’d feel nothing. Don’t tell me that [broken heartstrings] hurt less than a broken bone, that an ingrown life is something surgeons can cut away, that there’s no way for it to metastasize — it does.”
