Broken pieces

Of my heart

And their pointing edges

Bite the membranes of my skin

Tear open the dressings

And all that holds my being intact

Gets split and fragmented

And now

You have said your last words

And scratched the curtains

Of my wounds

Prompted the blood

To blurt out through my eyes

And get my cheeks

Drained to yellow-


And when all those broken bits

Drum the clamor and clatter

The noises reach my auricles

With a disconcerting shatter

And then

My friends!

Do not ask

If I keep myself alive

Of that unsettling void

Because I’m deceased

And I function no more

Yet I’m moving my limbs

But all’s shut dead

And all’s shut closed!



Don’t you hear?

These screeching screams

That are too obstinate

And ruling my poetries?

The hollowness

Has not gotten occupied


There’s an abyss

Still sleeping by my side-

It’s wide awake at this glamorous hour

How may I take the sleeping pills

Cuz I don’t have the mighty powers

To stay conscious

Of the pain it blesses

Oh I long for his velvety caresses

So to place a bandage

To all those broken pieces

Of my heart

And hold intact

Those pointing edges

To a whole living being-

Comparing one's broken heart to the cause of wounded body is such a classic, and I love it. I also love the continuous flow of the lines in this piece. Amazing work!
