Pieces

i break
like glass,
a former whole,
but now
in scattered pieces,

see-through
as i always was,
but now
you just can’t
ignore me,

and i love
the way your eyes,
carefully inspect
each diamond
shard of mine,

i broke
like glass,
but now bask
under the sunshine
of your attentive eyes,

you wanted to avoid
the devil in the details,
but the details
no longer
apply to me,

i sought you
as a whole,
but as whole
maybe it wasn’t
just meant to be,

so i broke
like glass,
as so often
hearts do
break too,

and each piece
a knife,
whose blade
finally gets to reflect
your eyes,

and inspite
of the pieces
i finally find my peace,
amongst these reflections
that i now hold.

  1. There is such powerful beauty in this poem – I love how you bring the sense of shining brilliance that comes when you are both breaking down and aware of the pieces that make up the whole – but now the whole is a deeper experience. Every verse just so perfect – my favorite :
    you wanted to avoid
    the devil in the details,
    but the details
    no longer
    apply to me,
