This shattered mirror I know so well-
Reflects the secrets Iíd never tell,
Pulling me closer to this self-made hell.

Living a mere shadow of broken heart-
Half a whole, only one part,
Feeling unjoined, where to start?

Super glue wonít work anymore-
What was it I was living for?
Was it love I was searching for?

Didnít I see this coming along-
Or was I too busy singing our song?
As you remained withdrawn?

Never again will I fall too fast-
Only to trip upon the broken glass-
Too fragile to ever last.



 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Devina, little Devina~

Sometimes I just want to reach through this screen and give you the biggest 'mommy' hug in the world.  This is one of those times.

{{{{{{{{ HUG }}}}}}}}
Love you.

devina, You will fall again.... and all this will just be so much dust. You'll say to yourself what was I crying over all that for your too sweet to be getting yourself down.
I'll just sneak a big hug and kiss in here for you, just between you and me. Ok now watch where you put those hands.

devina, don't be so hard on yourself. Some people are very good at decieving,especially the ones who love them the most. Maybe we are blind to it or perhaps they're just better at sucking us in. But for some reason it seems the ones we love the most are the ones that hurt us the most. An unfortunite fact of life.

devina, this poem shatters me....the emotion pours forth in it overwhelmingly.  I have a problem with broken mirrors myself of late.  Please know I am always here for you for a ((Hug)) or a shoulder.... I worry about you sometimes.

   I'm the mender of hearts so broke
   rescue them from misery they soak
  piece them together for another try
    wipe loney tears from their eye

    I cast upon them a healing spell
   deliver them from a self make hell
   take that half, that only one part
   and attach it to another true heart

     for you devina, a poet so fare
    I have for you a special repair
     someone so true forever to care
  in the moonlight he'll be standing there

     So don't lock up that heart too tight
     soon will appear handsome Mr. Right
     to sweep you away in lovers trance
     to begin again the dance of romance

Just trying to cheer you up.
Enjoyed your poem.

your poem touched me deeply...you hit on the universal pain we all have suffered and expressed it so well.

I felt this with every crash of the peices as they hit the floor.  Heart felt to the last peice

Hey "sis"!  How did I miss this one?  My turn to cry now...words of encouragement sound so trite sometimes during depression, but might I offer a little suggestion?  Plant an herb garden, go on a nature treasure hunt...fall in love with yourself.
Smiles and Hugs to the lovely devina.

devina...I know where your coming from but I don't have the answer. If I did I wouldn't be in my situation.  HoweverI am a firm believer in "What Goes Around Comes Around"!!! Thank God!
