Splintered Fragments


Splintered Fragments

I have no innocent illusions.     I only have deep voids.
                There’s only delusions  in my head.
Can you forgive my splintered fragments?     Can you calm my angry voice?
   Distract me with your itellectual intercourse
                     and watch me trip on philosophy like slippery rocks
                                      and then you’ll see me as I really am.
                                                   Lost and Broken.
                     And ,there,you stand,           looking like the answer,
       Wanting to lick my salty tears and bandage my bleeding wounds
And at my core I tremble,         because all I could think ,    is you already know too much.

"You already know too much." Yes, and I can see why this could be bad. For me, one of the scariest things about meeting new people is that eventually they are going to discover who I am. That scares me because I don't know if they can accept me after that. This poem reminds me that it's okay to be yourself. A great write. Thank you for sharing. :)

Oooh, This feels as if it was almost spoken in a whisper or plea...Deep and introspective honesty, laying ones soul bare! The delicate strength of your words is touching. Excellent write fashioned in fragmented lines to illustrate the feeling within!

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
