I'm fine. I just feel like I'm shattered into hundred of little shards of glass and I'm going to hurt everybody who loves me.


Teardrops
slip
down
my shocked face

I watch you
wither away
and turn
bitter

I hear the rough insults
that are shot like arrows
at my defenseless heart

I mourn the love
that you used to give
Now you hold it back
too scared to let it go

Now sobs rack my body
as I realize
I am talking about myself


The author's comments:
I never realized until now that I am scared of something that is invisible to my scared eyes.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

see, i thought this was another typical "lost love" poem, but the twist at the end was great. i really like this.
