Swallowing Glass and Decorative Ribbons

September 8, 2008


When you left me broken and confused
I swallowed glass.
Your words now travel through my body
Slicing away at me with every sentence.
Even now as I lay here wanting to cry
For the simple reason of not knowing why
Splinters trace the gaps behind my eye balls
Forbidding me to.
Now with every message I get
I am faced with the realization
It’s not you.
You blew the glass yourself
With the last words you uttered.
Repeating them
To hear them
Resound in my ear
Will only call them to the surface
And I will be the long ribbon
That once decorated
The Heart I gave you….
