Shattered porcelain heart

Struck by not fire, but ice

Let my tears

Cleanse the splinters of

A broken-down soul

Why do you must carry all the light

With you when you slam the door

Now it’s too dark to see my

Own mirror reflection


Waking up from the dream

In another world

Heart yet unbroken, soul not ripped

Tears not yet salty, or bitter

Fire still burning, blinds still open

You are more than a faded picture

Or a metaphor lying in my poems.

Startled by the nightmare

Harbinger of impending catastrophe


Fallen out of and into reality


Felt for myself, only grasped

Onto empty shell, groping

For the beacon

Burnt out Polaris, unbreakable shackles

Of memories lock me on the spot

From staggering towards the

Luminescent streetlamp

Remembering the sweet memory

When losing you was still only

A bad dream.
