Broken

by Star   Mar 21, 2020


pull the gauze off your palms
and let the blood express the thoughts
you failed to write.

your brain may unleash its
hidden stimuli
into verses of your type
of poetry.

your fractured bones
couldn't run over the full stops;

your words always flowed.

To share a path,
is to share a death
you said

but
at the end of your love poem
you will be the one left

broken..

    Hmmm ... does love break us? That’s what came to mind after reading the poem.

    Right away, the poignancy of you mentioning the blood can express all that this person failed to write... I mean wow. There's a fragility to that, a humanity, the inability to sometimes clearly define our thoughts and pinpoint our emotions.

    These were the best and most memorable/thought-provoking lines to me:

    "To share a path,
    is to share a death
    you said"

    This poem kind of reads as an enigma to me, but also, as an acknowledgement perhaps to the feeling of emptiness? That love can exist, you can write tributes to it, yet it is not enough, or it pains you and fractures your soul and you cannot make peace with it.

    Going to have to read again, thanks for sharing!
