Broken

It has been a while since I ventured into writing poetry.  That’s all I used to write until I was hooked on writing stories.  But a couple of weeks ago,  I started by getting a word stuck in my mind and then I’d start looking for its mates and rhythm.  Here I leave my latest attempt.

BROKEN

Where do I go from here?

My life is in shambles,

My heart is in splinters.

The universe is against me,

The break that I need is only taunting.

I have spent hours staring into space,

Shivering from the pain,

Shaken with the violence of my tears,

Asking myself if it’s even worth it.

If I can make it through another day,

Feeling so broken.

I wrote this for a friend who’s going through a touch time, hopefully it will help her express her feelings.
