Broken Glass

By
Pause the rain
Or stop the car.
The music is near
But the sound is far.
Cut the water.
Or move the stars.
Broken free from chains
But behind bars.
Scream to me whispers.
Design my dreams.
My reality of truth
May be what it seems.
Stationary, I run.
Silently, I speak.
Screaming, I think.
Still, I am meek.
They won’t understand
Until they age,
Open a new book,
And turn the page.
Pick up broken glass
And dispose of it.
You can’t piece together
What never will fit.
