Broken Things To Throw Away

Broken Things To Throw Away

A Poem by Angelheaded Hipster

Last night, a lot of things were revealed to me, and I wanted to tell him to f**k off, but I couldn't


I’m watching you with very tired
and sad eyes as you sweep up
what we broke between us.
The pieces of anger, sadness
realizations reflect in mirror
shards, staring at us in an almost
accusatory tone.

I didn’t ask for you
to clean me up. I don’t
need you to pick up
my broken shards that
will cut your feet…
But there you are, sweeping
and I can’t be okay with
this. This is a ride I’m quite
familiar with, and you say
you know…

But I don’t know if you know
where my heart lives.
I tell you, I give you bread crumbs
to guide you to the locked door
and yes, look under the mat,
you’ll find what you’re looking

If you’re still looking through
the shards of hurt and tears
it’s only going to hurt all over
again, and I wouldn’t recommend
such a thing to do.

I want to be worth it
You are to me, and that’s
quite a feat, cause here lately
I don’t really feel like giving
anything. With your freckled
smiles and words that dot
along my lips, you pull me
back in, with a flick of a finger
I’m there.

Sometimes the hurt will only remain if you let it. I like.

That was awesome. The visualization in the way you described the scene was great. And I can completely relate to the bottom line of the poem. It hurts when you argue and it seems like the end, but.. Somehow that slight feeling of hope causes you to try again.

It's beautiful in its pain and sorrow and though you want to turn your back you can't, there is a fiery passion that you give to your words allowing a flow to capture the reader, emotions tangle within one another and you portray wonderfully the story in your images.
