one broken

shows compassion

as much as can be

squeezed from a

situation

where they put all they

got

on the line &

like a shining star,

a blazing fire,

an electric shock

of as much as one can

see, without covering the

eyes with hands & finger,

the want to get to know,

to make acquaintance,

to witness this energy,

if but for only a moment,

writhes within the

onlookers---

often such vulnerability

only finds itself in small

places,

quick like the fluttering wings of

a fly,

quick & gone

faster than a first kiss

but ebbing & leaving traces of

what could’ve been,

had this individual not be

broken apart,

completely,

before this very instance.
