A Million Tiny Pieces

 

 

Taken while you wept on clustered fears of empty dreams,

broken remnants shuttered as in some storm cloud cellar

and yet the pain seeps through tiny cracks

invading every pore, seeking that which keeps fracturing

 

Puddles form at frozen feet, unable to move, chilled of anguish,

sub-zero burdens slither their way into the mind’s endless pathways,

hiding in corners, darkened at angular positions,

wedges of meeting points sheltering these evil thoughts

 

Falling on tender knees, hands clenched, pleading on tear drop pages

emotions, these concrete wishes stained on thin lines

appear from chained memories, tethered to branchless trees,

striking swiftly as I watch your heart shatter…

 

into a million tiny pieces on the floor…and I with it

Thank you so very much Julie. I appreciate your sweet words to me.
I am not much of a poetic analyst, I tend to comment more on grammar and form. However, this one I get tremendous empathy from the author, as he sees someone in pain and weeps and feels what that person feels.
