Museum of broken relationships

by Andrada Costoiu

It’s quiet….
This is a place you’ve all been before,
You left your own trinket of nostalgic memory and then you walked around between displays.
Each case is illustrating dramatic and epic love stories,
That ordinary people lived.
If is not heartbreak on display, it is life.
A ring of a broken engagement, reminds you that promises of forever don’t always last,
A mirror that she left at his place, reminds you that you are not always your reflection,  
An empty bag of cookies, reminds you that what is good sometimes gets empty, and that the wrap is sometimes more sturdy than the content….
I’m walking, I hear so many love languages.
Some people think this is a sad place, but I do not,
It is a place that reminds us that we are humans,
It is a place about the way we love, the way we lose, the way we learn,
It is a place about you, about me, about us all.
