Shattered


This poem was the response to a poetic challenge I found online sometime back – I can’t remember where, unfortunately, so I don’t have a copy of the picture  that prompted it: a shattered window.  However, I pulled out the poetic stops and came up with this … I’ve been posting sad / angry poems lately, soon I’ll get back to the love/erotic to cheer everyone (including myself!) up. 🙂

UPDATE – I realized this is a repost lol … didn’t realize I had it up here already. Anyway, for those who remember it, it’s a revisit, for those who don’t, enjoy….

Shattered

Peeking through splintered pane

Innocence hijacked

in a power move

by a cat burgular

Scaling heart’s wall

Sash slipped

slipping through

Soul’s window

slamming shut

he entered

Shattering

Fragile membrane burst

Blood

Tears

Window pain.

English: Broken window in a vandalised cottage...

  1. Ah Bajan, ♥

    You write where your heart lives for now, even if it is in a dark place. The love will be there when you’re ready to write about it again, promise.

  2. Loved the metaphor of cat burglar…profound, evoking the tears of empathy for the pain felt in this shattered soul.
