Every piece

is the whole of you ,

like every light

that shines on you .

Your heart bleeds red

when torn apart ,

like all the mess

in the salvage yard.

False lipstick

worn on your smile ,

a perfect portrait

painted by denial.

Desperation and gorilla glue

won't put the pieces ,

together for you .

You need love

and a new beginning ,

to end the suffering

and begin the forgetting.

All of your worth stripped away

all of your hurt cutting through ,

all of the light on a sunny day

is all of the hope that shines on you.

The rise from the fall

is a taste so sweet

that longs your hunger

to set you free.

Beyond the sea of ruins

is the poseidon,

Your inhabited way

to a new horizon .

It's deep inside

the whole of you,

like every light

that shines on you..
