ShatteredIs anyone out there?
I ask you to hear my distant pleas,
Silence my screams,
Banish my dreams,
And forgive me.
Someone cradle me,
Child that I am,
Lock my sorrows and fears away,
Turn my nightmares and tears astray,
Don't let them haunt me.
Someone show me,
Naïve that I am,
Show me that suffering happens in all places,
In the countless hearts and myriad faces
Of those who are human.
Someone mend me,
Broken that I am,
Sew together the fragments of my heart,
Help it be, part by part,
You may listen, but do you hear?
You may watch, but do you see?
Someone break me,
Darkness that I am,
Shatter me with the blissful light,
Destroy me with what is good and right
Before I devour myself.
Someone heal me,
Stone that I am,
Awaken me from this paralysed state,
Don't let sin be my destined fate,
Let my blood be crimson again.
The child made mistakes, let her be free,
The naïve one will see, hold her again,
The broken heart mends, please let it beat,
The darkness will fade, no
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
