one.
there is broken glass on the floor. the melody of the disaster
echoes through the hall.

there is no one here to hear it but me.


two.
i wake up with bruises on my skin;
        on my knees and elbows
        along the insides of my wrists
        the soft flesh of my stomach.

these will disappear in time.

                                            nothing will last forever.


three.
you found me once; i had gotten sloppy. i had wanted to be found.

have we met? you ask. there is something desperate
                      in your eyes.
        
i look away. no.

i am crying.
                    i am always crying.


four.
the glass breaks. i wake up.

                                                it never
                    
                                                    ends.


five.
sunlight on the leaves, rain in the distance;
i've heard this story before.

before it gets better, it will always get worse.

                                 it will always get worse.


six.
i am shadow and shade; time's forgotten tragedy.
the ache never heals even when the bruises fade.

i break the glass.

                            my bloody footprints are gone by morning.


seven.
have we met?

yes.

where?

                                everywhere.




the glass breaks. i wake up.

                                            the tears still won't stop.

have we met?

 
you know what would suck? if the world forgot you existed and no one remembers you and you have to relive the same day/week endlessly and wonder why youre still here. that would really suck.

    my first thought when i saw this was, "hooray she's back!!" quickly followed by, "oh no this is going to rip my heart out isn't it." your formatting and diction is unmatched; somehow you manage to evoke a type of melancholy that comes only from knowing in a world where everyone else is clueless. this endless suffering is awful yet poignant; i hate you and i love you for it. and the continual motif of broken glass? inspired. this leaves something slick and heavy in my chest and "have we met?" will keep echoing in my head for the rest of the day. thanks for this. truly.

    This is very good writing! The theme reminds me of the movie Groundhog Day. It’s a great movie, you should watch it! :) Anyway, I love the writing style and the way you formatted it really adds to it! This is an amazing piece!
