Slivers of my soul

Lie scattered

Embedded in the hearts

Of those I have loved

Those who have broken me


Floating, weightless

In an arctic ocean

A glacier filled abyss

Of frozen affection

Scarred and broken


My scars have come alive

Torn open once more

As my heart breaks

From love unreturned

Life seems so bleak


But I stand

And I stitch

Myself back together

In hopes that

No one will hurt me
