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.
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.
