    Breakups. Most of the time, breakups are hard to navigate. Sifting through what can only be described as emotional wreckage and listening to sad songs is just half of the process. Nowadays, getting over a broken heart is much harder than it used to be. Why? Social media. With social media, we get constant updates

    This poem is about the people we love and the people who left, especially, the people who fall into both categories. In this poem, I think you can tell that I am a huge fan of imagery and metaphors, but I also wanted to keep this poem a little bit more vague, so that people
