Repaired With Gold

Repaired With Gold

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm

Does one become more beautiful after being broken?


Does one become more beautiful

after being broken?

Could they be repaired with gold

until their heart and mind

are no longer numb?

Will the harsh voices

that caused each crack


into a billion pieces

as if never spoken?

If so,

please paint each crack in my heart

and stop.......

where this pain flows from.

i love the last three lines Neva...

and yes, i think broken can be beautiful...vulnerable meets vulnerable and together they show great power...

we learn from our mistakes...we grow, we become better people...but i don't think gold will do might...but gold will only be a temporary fix.

lots of guts in this poem, Neva.

You bring a fleshy, anatomical angle to this sculpture, breathing in and out the words, very good.

So true, I wish that broken hearts could be repaired like that and be all the better for it, as well as being able to stop the flow of pain it causes.

This poem....there is something in the choice of words and the pattern and the message that causes me to read and reread it. Short and to the point like a samurai battle; small and delicate like Japanese art. What more can be asked of words on a page? Well done, dear poet.

Very short, but full of meaning. I think it is very good.

It is oft said that one is worth their weight in gold - so does the part that is lost and makes one feel less of a person, one who is more vulnerable actually heal and possess more self worth when repaired with gold? I would think so.........and your words help me ponder this soul searching question.
Beautiful, and wise!

Your inspiration for the poem is wonderful, it shows through the piece but you've still managed to tell your own story.

In awe of your words, as always.

I like how you've taken that custom and weaved it into a poem about character. It's a brilliant idea for a poem. I like the essay style nature of your poem, question, question and then well what do you think? My conclusion - those golden lines are the light from which the character shines.
