ive always been a heart breaker.
but not in the sense this word is known for.
this kind is different.
it has nothing to do with romantics,
just my own personal feelings.

ive always been a heart breaker.
it first started when i told my mother id been bullied.
i told her id never go back.
i cried and explained i was miserable.
it broke her heart knowing i was in so much pain.

ive always been a heart breaker.
the second time happened two years later.
my mom caught me and friends drinking.
she was so proud of me until that night.
the betrayal of her trust broke her heart.

ive always been a heart breaker.
fast forward six months.
my boyfriend at the time found out id been abusing pills again.
id been clean almost 9 months.
it broke his heart knowing he couldnt do anything to help.

ive always been a heart breaker.
now june 2015, the 12th to be exact.
i get the news one of my best friends has passed.
i collapsed into my mothers arms.
my pain broke her heart.

ive always been a heart breaker.
august 8th, 2015, my dads birthday.
another friend of mine has passed away.
the people with me, and the people ive called.
i broke multiple hearts this night..

ive always been a heart breaker.
sometime last week.
i told my mom i needed help.
i couldnt contain my anxiety another minute.
i broke her heart for the fifth time.

ive always been a heart breaker.
but not in the sense this word is known for.
its something ive come to believe is inevitable.
its always the ones closest to you,
with the most fragile of hearts.
