broken shards #tellastory

broken shards of dreaded memories
glisten in the comforting darkness
and i dare myself to approach them
thinking that maybe the pieces might hurt
a little less than what once was

whimpers i silenced
tears i never let fall
memories i tried to forget
they all come back to me now
gnawing at my soul and 
forcing me to acknowledge them
in scattered fragments

broken nails, 
clothes torn to rags,
dirt streaked faces,
bloody—

ashes fell through the air like snow,
creating a storm of chaos and confusion 
my eyes burned like the buildings around me
preventing me from searching the area
although searching would do no good
i knew that no matter—

the idea was utterly abhorrent 
but i had no choice
i grabbed the—

prayers were whispered
as well as rumors
the body was disfigured 
i sat on my car
wrapped in a blanket 
and i wondered—

these broken shards bring 
no less pain and suffering 
than when they were whole
they only remind me of
what i’ve forgotten and
what i’ve lost to my own
mind

    Hello, new reviewing partner! I switched my place with Dmoral13 so you would have a new partner this month. Let me know what pieces you want me to review. (I don't have a preference what pieces of mine you review.)

    This feels more like a song than a poem to me, but great spacing overall :)
