Random Poem:

Like Busted Glass

A picture made in glass
was once you and me.
The glass is now shattered
my roaming pain is free.
Free to end my life,
Ruin me again,
Take the busted shards
and cut my life away.
A noose hangs from the tree.
The pattern made in glass
I see our broken faces,
Our hearts are beaten black.
I'll put the pieces back
that's fallen on the floor.
Mend it back together.
My life iis still sore,
I'll close my eyes again
I'll take a final look
Shed my last tear for you
and slowly close the book.
Take what you've left me here dying.
A broken shard that keeps me crying.
Will our blood mend our picture together again?
Or will time tell me to let go...
