A Broken Heart

These fragile hearts

So easily broken

But so hard to mend

Once wounded

Will carry a scar forever

Though the pain may fade

The memory remains

All along

You had a porcelain heart


The focus could be better (I need to try with a tripod instead of handheld so I can use a smaller aperture), the composition could use improvement (too close-up), and there are doubtless other things I should fix if I try to redo this shot later. I might have used an actual porcelain heart for this had I had one, but I might have to have it broken for the theme and I would really not want to do that. An expensive camera and lenses and mad editing skills (plus knowing more about and just being good at photography in general would be nice, but I don't have those, so those things are a few reasons why my photos aren't breathtaking...I just have to work with what I have now.
