Shattered Glass

Shattered Glass

A Poem by Brette Medb

Empty.
A wordless state of emotion and feeling.

Guilt.
A heaviness unescapable in silence.

Death.
A state of being, not necessarily an end.

Shattered glass, fragmented beyond recognition,
Smashed, broken beyond repair.
A thousand scattered reflections blurred
Marred by what is left behind.
Mirrored into the soul the thousand shards
Of the truth held inside.

I really like this - and how you broke up the formatting really worked for me too (sometimes such purposeful arrangement comes across as pretentious or corny, and this did not - much to my relief)!

This bit below ends the piece with a profound bang. What great visual metaphor and feeling. Wow.

Marred by what is left behind.
Mirrored into the soul the thousand shards
Of the truth held inside. "

An excellent, emotional piece.

I like the way this is structured and progresses. It seems to begin sterile with the meanings of these words to you, but assembled in a way with a deeper meanings that you surrender to by the last stanza and write of in full passion.

Very true!

I like the way you break it down in the beginning, giving it an abrupt end with each three words. Closing out with a lucid flow.

"Death.
A state of being, not necessarily an end." - I really like this line.
