Shadows

Nice things always
break
and I cry in the dark
because I am ashamed of
your questions
that I cannot answer
and the pieces that I cannot
find
to put myself back
together.

    The writer created vivid feelings of an entangled mess of pain in one fluid sentence in this piece. I was struck by the lines "because I am ashamed of/ your questions/ that I cannot answer" and how it fits into the overall theme of being broken and how impossible it can feel. I also thought the poem was more impactful if I read it slowly to savor the meaning in each line. I enjoyed this a lot, great job by this writer.
