Heartbreaks are geometric lines
They have length, but no width or height,
You can pile one upon another, ad infinitum
And they don't add up...not at all!
Heartaches are polygons
They have many-sided figures
With length and width, but no depth,
Only abysmal feed-backs!
Memories are solids
With length and width and height
Imaginary figures that aren't there,
Not really there...yet everywhere!
