shattered red glass

hidden beneath white covers

filled with comforting feathers,

you find me,

soaking myself with tears.

gasping for breath,

barely clinging to life.

a grim hole

ripped in my chest,

shattered red glass

surrounding me.

polished, lustrous, and yet


every malicious edge

aimed at me.

ominously threatening.

drawing  a deep yet shaky breath,

filled with every emotion,

every memory,

every second of you,

i exhale.

shattered red glass rolls

beneath my soft skin

as i do…

piercing me,

staining the white sheets scarlet.

sanguinary and beautiful,

misery flows deep from


as i stare,

the expanding stains

fascinating me.

their patterns swirl and twirl,


I rise,

more shattered glass piercing my arms,

my legs..

a welcome throbbing

replacing an apathetic existence.

i stumble toward the door,



seeking relief.

i step outside

into a thundering


a barbaric scream

climbs out of my soul,

echoing back against

the vociferous sky.

we talk,

that boisterous sky and I,

as the rain nearly

drowns me.

as the sky clears,

my wounds heal.

i stand naked,

perilously ethereal and vulnerable.

dripping wet,

covered in water mixed

with remnants of a bloody battle,

i crawl back inside,

rip the sheets off my


tossing them into flames,

glass and all.

one jagged piece remains,

saved but not treasured.

a reminder

of the heart

which once beat

so dependently upon
