“I want to be important. By being different. And these girls are all the same.”

Lately
I’ve been flaking off –
(paint chips.)
each piece a person
who was in my life, but
left me.

Whether death or choice,
each left and took a piece of me
with them. Now
I find
it’s hard to move
on with all these
holes and parts falling
out –

it’s hard
to limp through life
with no crutch, no love,
and the same broken-leg
hurt.

Torn memories wave in the mind
like torn white waving flags.
Give up …
as now, all you have
is …

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Oh, geez. This is absolutely, amazing and phenomenal. It's just absolutely, powerful and beautiful to me. There's this kind of simplicity in it, but your poem isn't simple - it's just extremely powerful and beautiful to me. I absolutely, love it. I adore it, actually. You have talent and greatness and light and a beauty that is your own; and so much more. You're an amazing and beautiful and talented writer. All of this and just much more. I'm truly glad that your poem has been published. You truly deserve it. I look forward to reading more of your work. :) Thank you so much for sharing this, my friend. Thank you, again. :)
