Cracks In My Vase

Cracks In My Vase

A Poem by Rico X
"

Cracks in my vase
Tears down my face
Memories I can't erase
See I can taste
The blood in my throat
As I float
Out to the ocean
I am hopin'
That no one
Sees my misery
So now on
The shelf of
Life I sit
Trying to hide from
The bullshit
Stranded
Lying that I can
Handle it
Cause most people
Won't understand it

Cracks in my vase
Tears down my face
Memories I can't erase
See,
For me
I still can taste
The blood in my throat
As I float out to the ocean
Hopin' that no one sees
My pain and misery

Like me
She
Is f-r-a-g-i-l-e
Broken and violated
Hated
Jaded
Just like me
She is made
Of porcelain
As the desires of men
Have her cracks
Running down her back
As they each have
Made a mess
That's hidden
Under her dress
Just below her waist
She could taste
The blood in her throat
The semen in her thighs
As the tears
Flow from
Her eyes
As she floats
Out to the sea
Just like me
She's hoping no one
Sees her misery

See
We
Both are stranded it
Cause no one understands it
So on the shelf of life
We hide our imperfections
From the light
Hoping that someone might
See pass our flaws and
Heal our scars
Love us for who we are and
See the potential
That we still possess
Although we both
Are a mess
Our cracks don't define us
They just remind us
We are not perfect
So don't expect
Us to be
Despite our tarnished
History
We are still beautiful
In every way
Despite what they say
Don't walk away
From us today

AND

Don't pick us up
to later put us down
Don't let us fall
Fall to the ground
Into a million tiny bits
Even shattered
We matter
Despite the bullshit
Not sure if we could
Handle it

Now do you
See
That
She
Me
We
Still
are

This is raw and beautiful. Brought vivid imagery to my mind. It really made me feel. Beautiful.

I was sent here by a friend, and I must say that I am glad.. this is the first piece of yours that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.. the fast pace, the raw edges, and the sincere tone makes this one powerful..

"Our cracks don't define us
They just remind us
We are not perfect".... couldn't agree more with these lines..


"Even shattered
We matter".... we forget this sometimes.. dented, cracked, flawed--doesn't mean broken... we are special and deserve happiness....

fragile we may be, but where those scars have healed and that glue has been applied is sometimes stronger than it initially was before it cracked.. well written... can't wait to read more!..
