shatter.

the sacred road

 

i stand before the mirror
fragile
fading
fast.

i watch
in fascination
relief
that the inevitable
has finally
come to play.

the tender shell
once holding me precariously
together
begins to crumble.

cracks
scatter across my skin
a weaving network
of broken
promises
dreams
beliefs.

 

finally….
perspective
validation
that the shadowed
doubts
worries
achings
of my heart
are
true.

i
am
less.

there is comfort
in no longer having to fight
hear empty words
that are blown away
with directly opposite actions.

he
she
they
are the ones worthy
of time
attention
support.

 

i am the cloud
forever darkening the horizon
with words
that fall on deaf ears
for they are not
or have ever been
worth listening to.

i watch
as the facade crumbles
and my scarred existence
falls
away….

pieces carried
whisked away on the wind –
their song
lost
drowned
silenced…

just
as
you
