I used to love.
I loved easily, openly and with great passion.
But I was young and foolish then.
I no longer love this way.
Time, pain and shattered illusions have numbed me.
Though even through a Novocaine haze I somehow allow cracks in my armour.
Is there a putty for such openings? Something that one can run out to the drugstore and buy?
A bit of heart caulking if you will. My version would have an anaesthetic mixed in, something akin to Neosporin with pain relief.
I’m pretty sure there would be a market for such a salve.
If there was, would you buy it?
