A Thousand Pieces


A Thousand Pieces

From the glass of a broken shell

About a thousand pieces

What a story they tell

Broken glass

About a thousand pieces

Relinquishing the past

Memories of hurt

And of pain

Endless rivers of tears

What was the gain?

Among the broken wreckage

About a thousand pieces

From a world so hectic

Holding me down

Keeping me bound

So tightly wound


About a thousand pieces

That once fit so neat

About a thousand pieces

That were once a part of me

But no more

I am no longer trapped

From the glass of my broken shell

About a thousand pieces

What a story they tell

Wonderful piece! I truly enjoyed the wordplay and theimagery of the broken pieces. Good job!

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
