I have heard it said that if you seek to truly understand something, you must first view each of its components in their most simplistic form. Only then, they say, will you gain an appreciation for the intricate mechanisms that work diligently in unison towards a common purpose.

I have found this to be true.

It was not until I had broken your heart that I was able comprehend its magnificent capacity for selflessness and unconditional love. I was able to understand and appreciate you in ways that I never had before. What I hadn’t realized at the time was the tremendous effort that was needed to reassemble all of the parts necessary to recreate the original whole. Immediately, I realized that I had made a fatal mistake. I lacked the ability to put all of your many complex pieces back together. I was ashamed of myself for breaking something so beautiful. I held my breath, closed my eyes and walked away. The only solace that I have found is knowing that someday, someone will come along with enough patience, love and knowledge to remedy what I could not.
