Lyric Fire: Where Do Broken Hearts Go? (Writers, Poets, Singers, Journalists, Comedians, Doctors & Publicists Weigh In)

Today from the “Tamstarz Random Writer Thoughts” file:

Here is my interpretation of how writers, poets, singers, journalists, comedians, doctors & publicists would pose, think about and rationalize the question, ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go?’

  • WRITER: “What does it all mean?”
  • SINGER: “Where do broken hearts go?”
  • JOURNALIST: “Who caused the heart to break?” “What was his/her motive?” Where was he/she when the heart broke?” “Why was the heart broken?” “Do we have a chart showing the levels of brokenness?”
  • COMEDIAN: “Why the fxck did you marry him/her in the first place? Dumb-azz! Everybody knew she/he was a gold-digger! Now look ‘atcha! She/He took half didn’t they? Good for you! Broke, dumb, mutherfxcker!
  • DOCTOR: “Would you like a prescription for Xanax, Zoloft or Paxil?” “Do you have insurance?”
  • POET: “Can you feel the deep, dark depths of my despair?”
  • PUBLICIST: “Can you hand me my Blackberry? I have to call Good Morning America. We can get an hour-long special out of this! People love angst in the morning!”

Challenge! – What do you think an architect, social media manager, social worker, maintainence worker, bartender, clown or a rapper would say? Get creative! Let’s have fun with this!

    Architect – I can built a memorial with the broken pieces of the heart.
    Social Media Manager – Let us do a public poll.
    Social Worker – We should let the whole world know about it, let us do a protest march.
    Maintenance Worker – I can fix it.
    Bartender – the drinks is on me!
    Clown – drama.

    architect – Why don’t we have an access audit for relationships!?
    social media manager – lets post this everywhere so he/she never gets a girl/boy again – you tweet and I will re-tweet, you fb it and I will share – lets make this viral
    social worker – Oh common there are more unfortunate ones out there!
    maintainence worker – You should have sealed the deal
    bartender – Drown your sorrows with this double and then a few shots…
    Clown – Wear a smile, you don’t want him/her to know you are hurt… Laugh it off…

    Social Worker:” I will give you a list of people that might be able to help you, they are mostly paid on sliding scales .”
    Maintenance worker:” Get my hammer”.
    Bartender:”Lady, have a drink on me, I’m off at 2:00 if ya want some company.”
