Pieces – Written Thursday 28th July 2011 (Aged 36)


i know it is now in pieces
and like everyone,
experience has divided me
being saddened –
has encircled me
but now,
now there is you
and i do not want to be just pieces
or just shards
pieces of experiences
remnants of all those broken hearts
i want to be more
not perfect,
but not so much a puddle
one of emotional loss
a muddle,
sat there always counting the cost
i know,
life has taken its toll
and that we are all paying
just trying to get back some control
believe me, and the words i am saying
