Broken glass.

You’re broken glass, and I’ve got

Shards of you, stuck to my skin

They pierce me, with every breath I take

Making me bleed, until I’m covered in blood

But don’t they know, that I’m a masochist?

Who craves the pain, that comes from loving you?

I’ve got my lungs full of you

Making it hard to breathe

But I love the pain, the pain that comes from loving you

The pain kills me, but makes me feel alive

I’ve got shards of you, stuck to my skin

And I’m in no hurry, to take them out.

  1. I am speechless.
    This comes from the depth of your heart.
    I see you as one of the best poets I have ever read.
    Though I feel you should be relieved of suffering.
    May God bless you!
    Love and light ❀

    1. Whatever I write is purely fiction, Anand. Unless I specify it isn’t. Thank you so much. πŸ˜€ That is such a great compliment. I’ve just started writing poetry though, hope to get better at it. Thank you. ❀

      1. If it’s pure fiction, it makes you even greater a writer. Pure genius! I have shared it on social media.

        Blessings and LOve ❀

  2. Miss.Thief, poetry unlike prose makes you feel for the words sculptured it, where as in prose Its all about knowing and realizing it. You made me feel it. Thank you.

    Last two lines were amazing, it reminds me of something and someone,

    Sometimes a night changes a life
    Sometimes the wait keeps you alive

  3. I cannot relate to this but just trying to catch the described feeling like an actor, to perceive it in order to be able to perform, is a challenging self-experiment triggered by this poem. Your imagination must be a wide open space for such provoking thoughts on human nature. Well done!

  4. You did it again. You went and wrote something that I want to immediately reblog because it so clearly depicts something in my life. I can’t wait for you to do it again.

  5. You have a talent that far exceeds many professional authors I have read. The words flow effortlessly and allow the reader to create their own image and feelings rather than relying on the author’s emotions. This takes great skill.
