she has her reasons
to be sure, all
packed away inside
fairly safe, too despite
their fragile surroundings
one wakes her up in the morning
a little one brings her smiles
another makes her go to work each day, and
there's one she can't put words to
that hasn't let her leave
so there must be another
that makes her stay
but there was one more,
and I guess I'd have to say
her reason couldn't reason
anymore
for now she had to find
why they all chose to unbelieve.
the finding grew unfathomable
and her reason cracked
just shattered
made a mess
all over the floor
and as she laughed strangely
and ran away
she took one look back
at the
crystal casualty

Now I could be a mean O&O and wonder where this "reason" had been hiding... *G* or I could simply say sadly beautiful... and hand over the super glue. *S*

I just love your poems!  You have such a way with words...and the way your put your thoughts together are just inspirational...

I find it so fasinating how differently people write and how it is all equally beautiful in the individuality...(if that makes sense.. )


 I love the time
and in between
the calm inside me
in the space
where I can breathe...

Great poem, k z. And cheer up, okay? At least we're friends.   Look at this way: it's better to realize something, be unhappy with the past, and implement change and make yr own future than to just stay in a rut, unhappy, permanently. You're doing the right thing.

Isn't there a saying about breaking glass means 7 years of happiness ? ... Corazon, with crystal you'll have 77 of them ...

Corazon~
Sometimes even 'crystal hearts'
shatter.  But, hon ... there is
beauty in the pieces.
Be kind to yourself this day.

The crystal shards left lying
scattered on the floor
Reflect a kaleidoscope of colors
More beautiful than before.

Only when itís broken
Do the lights dance across the glass
The futureís shining, sparkling
Let go of the past.

Weep not for the crystal
although broken, it has grown
from a symbol of holding it together
to someone shining on her own.

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley

tattered bits,
posted through need
and see the me,
the whole, happy me,
that I
want to be...
now that my friend
is amazing to me...
thank you so much
for your kindness
