Poem: Broken

Reality Broken

Broken
Spirit, broken
Soul, broken
Beyond repair?
Don’t know.
Broken
Promises, broken
Hearts, when
Did all this
Madness start?
Broken
Glances, broken
Bones, broken
Disabled,
All alone.
Broken
Mirrors, broken
She dies,
Why did I
Believe the lies?
Broken
Vision, broken
Mind, broken
Young, broken
Time.
