pale and fragile

pale and fragile

A Poem by Pale Rose

my little pieces of heart were stitched together by you, and
for you this zombie’s heart can still beat, but maybe it
beats too fast, too rough, and stitches come loose; I just
need you to retie the ends, even when it makes no sense, like
when I cry one night and you don’t know what you did, and
see no problem with how things are--just take a moment, 
keep my heart together. please, I need it, knots slip 
without your help, and it’s coming apart all the time;
time doesn’t heal, it just seals the wounds up tighter, and
the pain is always there in the clot--just a bare cluster of
tight little scars, pale and fragile.

Love this writing. It is simple, yet very deep. I can relate to this, and could feel the pain from a past relationship as I was reading. I remember thinking the same things, in the same ways, but never putting it down into words. Great job. This is executed very well. :)
