Broken Again

I thought I was stone,
but now I am glass.
You can see right through me
And now I am nothing.

A loneliness that dwells inside
shatters me in to fragments
that never fit together.
And all the things I find slip
through my fingers like water.

Always running and never stopping,
I long to fall so I can be free.
And I ever long for the arms that catch me
when I am.

“Shit, Bugger
Bum, Bitch,
Piss, cock, fart
Somebody broke
My brittle heart”

    The description and the poem don’t at all compliment each other chris! or maybe that’s exactly what you intended!…

    BTW – The Poem – I think rocks!!! …and…I hope the fall is worth the catch or vice versa – you know what I mean!!

    ah yes. This one. I think this one was my favourite before. I still love it. That last line is like a kick in the teeth.

    So wonderful Chris..I think we all appreciate the poem so much because we know what a true GIFT love is…..and how easily it can slip or just simply fall away.Everyone needs love…to truely live…its as important as air,water, food……a heartbeat………………..its vital to live a life worth living…..Trisha
