Apple Like A Heart Broken In Half

Cut in half
Round, red, white and rough
Not complete like a lost love
Not coming together again
Like it was before

As time passes by
The white part gets darker and darker
Love can sometimes go bad
It won’t stay clear forever

The knife doesn’t touch immediately its core
It starts from the outside
But slowly goes deep inside
It finally touches the heart
And that’s when you know that everything’s done


Apple like a heart broken in half
