Shattered Glass

About 8 months ago, my world was turned upside down. That is what inspired the poem below.

Shattered Glass

Gingerly stepping
Avoiding the remnants
The shattered pieces
Of my own reflection

Look, but don’t touch
The memories cut
And I bleed
Desperate attempts
Failed attempts
To connect the shards
The shards of who I once was

Laying it down
The pieces slip,
They fall from my grasp
Completely broken
But breathing
In and Out, In and Out

And here, I remain
