At Fault

At Fault

A Poem by Andrea
"

No longer able to place the blame in someone elses' hands.

"

I concealed my heart in concrete

to protect it from the world,

but it couldn’t stand a chance against

the earthquake that was planned to come.


For something so easily broken,

you would think it would be an easy repair.

Not a bandage or glue or masking tape

can fix the damage that has been done.


But this is not about the heart anymore

It is about the distruction.

Who dare have a soul

cold enough to watch this organ perish?


I can blame every living being

and still not feel at ease.

I know the hand that

crushed my heart


is attached to my wrist.

And the earthquake that shakes my world

was formed by my rage.
