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

Oh Jack, you own my tears right now... I can hardly type anything right now I can barely. I know all too well how you are feeling as you know but this right just punches you in the face. It is jam packed with emotion, heartbreak and wanting to help.

You know, being there is the only thing we can do right now, and our support is much needed my sweet friend, I know we've been talking about this in much depth but I think this right just sums it all up.

Heartbreaking my friend, but truly tremendous at the same time.
