Parts of You Fill My Empty Pockets

Parts of You Fill My Empty Pockets

A Poem by Gabrielle Lyn

Parts of you fill my empty pockets
They shake around 
next to my keys

They don't take up too much space
I am rarely aware of their weight
And the ringing sounds they make
Have become nothing more than
background noise

But occasionally they spill out
I forget how much 
I carry around

When they hit the floor
they sometimes
break

So I spend more time putting everything 
back in it's 
place

With every piece I hold, I relive
With every piece I relive, I keep
And I still have each one
you gave me

Maybe I should return them to you
But I know your pockets are already full
With parts of me
