You stood glaring
through a glass plate window
watching from behind.
Then you shattered me
and walked on by
knowing you’d be fine.
A distorted life
of rippled panes
thinking...I would never
be the same
I should have seen
the signs.
I was but a platform
for you within a bed
never understanding
all the pains you caused
while standing on my head.
Everybody suffers
but why'd you take my soul
it wasn't yours, but mine
now I have no choice
I’ll have to find rewind.
You know you did
you shattered me
choked me with your shards
but like you, I’ll find a way
to spit you out
discarding what you say
and unplug you, from my mind.
Then I’ll walk away.


  1. wow. in your face imagery...choking on shards...imagine that will be pretty hard to work out...i think most of us can relate on some level though...nice one shot.

  2. The pains...definitely agree with Brian of the imagery, well done! :) But in some manner to me sets as a getting beyond and the old phrase "what goes 'round comes 'round" at the end. the "Then I'll walk away"...Great writing! ~April

  3. I like the glass imagery for your Shattered poem. Very nice.

  4. very vivid description - i can feel the pain..

  5. You paint pain with such beating brush, your palette pours brilliance..i am totally impressed David! AMAZING poem :)

  6. Such wounding words you use here that are sure to leave deep cars and a lifetime of healing. Terrific one shot!

  7. Pain and shattered thoughts... Liked it so much...
