A broken poem
Shattered like glass
Blown to pieces
Implodes like gas

A broken poem
Cries in despair
To read it's words
No one would dare

A broken poem
A bleeding heart
Words that tear
Your soul apart.

A lost message
Attempts to write
Faithfully
The soldier fights

But in the end
He dies alone
And his words
Are never known

A broken poem
A nameless poem
Is a poem that is better
Never known...

Wow.  I love this SO much!  "A broken poem/ Shattered like glass"  I was looking through all the poems trying to find a specific one, but when I saw your first two lines, I had to backtrack.  I'm glad I did.  I seriously REALLY like this.  Hope it makes it into the mag.
