Description of BREAKING

Diffuse posted this thread...
Oct. 18, 2012 at 1:42 am

I need a help to form a description of something breaking. Just for future works, on describing breaking hearts.
The common way is to compare heart with a glass... "shattered heart", "powder",.....
What if it were to be said to be broken like... some piece of wood? I have something coming but, I fail consistently...
I want to describe the place of the break, where there are (i forgot the word for here) these sharp shapes--I want the word for those shapes. I know there is one.

And of course there are threads that are still bound together.

Hi, you can take a look at my poem "Seven Years." It has some things in there about breaking that you can use.

Sometimes I compare things to a mirror instead of regular glass, or a cut down tree.

And in metaphor, the mirror reflects all that we see of the outside world, and once it's shattered, our vision of the world is broken, we stop trusting what we see???? That's higher in ideology.... I always focused on the exact texture of the emotion, and tried to describe that.... But I should like to try that sometime.



And the tree.... it grows and grows... and finally someone hacks it down... to use it in situations where we quietly endure it all??? I think I got it, thanks
