Mending A Broken Heart

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    Wonderful news all round Jesi!
    And beautiful poem too! Really enjoyed it.
    Though, lately, my own kids have been breaking MY heart, and I have been left to ponder what I would to for them. And I believe the answer, for me, is to stand up tall and teach them that even if you love someone, you can (and should) say no to things you cannot live with. That it doesn’t mean you don’t love them any more, but that you just need to take care of yourself first, like you’d understand them taking care of their needs first.

      First, I am so glad to hear from you!!!!!
      Second, I have been where you are. It took me a long time and having my eldest son break my heart to realize that doing what’s best for my kids sometimes means doing what’s best for you. They won’t like it at first, or maybe you won’t. But eventually, after the dust settles, everything usually works out in the way it needs to. It may not mean better; it may mean simply different. After all, and like you said, you’d understand them taking care of their needs first. And I’ve given a lot to my kids and always will. I’d still do anything for them, but now it’s within reason and with understanding that I have needs as well that are just as important. And I don’t think that makes either of us selfish or uncaring, simply adults making mature decisions. So, you have my support! *hugs and kisses* to you too, dearest!
