Heart of glass

You shattered my heart
and the tiny fragments
scattered through
out my body
collecting in the corners
of my mind:
slicing away my self esteem,
piercing my hopes
slashing all my dreams
carving up my faith
hacking at my life
until all that’s left
are tiny little pieces
of me

    I should read more of your posts after reading this. I like especially the three lines: “Slicing away my self-esteem … slashing all my dreams.”
