Just A Little Bit Broken

You tell me that

You’re broken

As though

It’s a reason

For me not to love you

And simply walk away


But it’s never going to happen

Like how I still drink my coffee

Every morning from my favourite mug

Despite the chipped rim

And cracked handle

Knowing that one day

It will cut me

And make me bleed

But I just can’t throw it away


Just like that

I will never walk away

From you

Just because

You’re a little bit
