Subdued

Subdued

My heart kind of broke today.

Not the ordinary shatter-into-a-million-pieces kind of break,

Nor a shatter that left it irreparable,

but more of a fine,

barely noticeable, crevice

that you would trip over

if you weren't looking down.

The almost unnoticeable crack in my heart that removed the crazy obsession I once carried...

It's now a calm,

subdued,

quiet kind of love.

Gone is the insanity,

the intensity,

the complexity,

ravaging,

wild,

feisty,

engulfing,

can't think of anything, but you, thoughts.

I hope you're happy and no longer worried about me loving you with such an intensity.

Subdued and

sweet and

calm.

Normal.

Hereafter.
