Shards of Words

Shards of Words

A Poem by RomaJ

The blank sheet of paper
lay perfectly still

There are no words to describe,
for words have no meaning,
to the words that burnt inside

emotions burn, the lead on the pencil,
yearns to dance a long its lines,
to sing sweet memories of you
that linger, on her restless mind

How she wished, she could've changed that paper.
Erased every painful line,
begin it with the sweetest words and end it with a rhyme.

but the memories cut like a razor

and the words, just shards of glass

as the tears,
bleed
down
the paper
it smeared and blurred the lines

for the words left unspoken
never saying goodbye.
The pencil she held, lie broken
like the heart that bleeds inside

and the words, just shards of glass

In her broken heart

This is beautifully tragic - reminds me of my friend from high school who cut. Thankfully she got help. Thank you for this piece :)

Thank you Andrew...:)
These word shards are powerful enough for me to feel your pain, the broken pencil, the broken heart and the shards of words; great imagery

Excellent. I think the imagery of the shards of memories, words that are both fragmented and cut deep is fabulous.
