No Longer Apart

And though my heart was cracked a little...

I came to you, not broken
But in pieces. Dismantled.
A big jigsaw puzzle
Of disassembled parts.
With “Contents Fragile”
Written on the box.
And though my heart
Was cracked a little
I wrapped it up well
Right before I left.
And it arrived intact.
It’s a good thing, too
Because the rest of me
Fell apart, and arrived
A messed up tangle.
But my heart was okay.
Slightly damaged, yes
But good enough
To give to you.

  1. Wow, thank you so much! Like I’ve mentioned before, I have one or two good poems in me a month, and lots of mediocre poems. This is a good one.

  2. Oh, that is so beautiful! It makes me think there is hope that my heart is “good enough” for someone out there. . .somewhere out there. . .ah!

    • Thank you so much! I actually wrote this one a while ago. I dusted it off for this week’s picnic because of the self-reflective free verse theme. Glad you liked it!

Words, words, glorious words! Give me all of your words!
