    She was broken. Her heart lay in billions of

    pieces, spread about the floor like tiny specs of dust. It would be impossible to tell that her heart had even been there at all, had you not been looking for it. Don’t clean me up, she begged. Don’t throw me out. She needed time to put the pieces back together, but she didn...

    But It'S Not What You Would Imagine
