Beautifully broken.

Bravo <——- Me applauding. This is one of the best pieces I have read since I started blogging. From the opening line you captured me. When you arrived at "Leaving parts of herself behind, trailing in her wake" I was absolutely in love with this tattered lady. I wanted to be there to pick up every piece and glue them back together. By the end you had me standing up and cheering. What a masterpiece. I will reblog this post for everyone to see. Keep Writing Miss Book Thief.

Literature Is My Porn

She broke a little each day, leaving the pieces with everyone she met

She broke so quietly, the pieces

Never making a sound, as they fell on the floor

Leaving parts of herself behind, trailing in her wake

Nobody even knew she was broken

But you knew, didn’t you?

The moment you looked into her eyes, so sad and haunted

You knew how beautifully broken she was

You knew, for you were broken too

Instead of gluing her pieces together, you seeped

Into her soul, until your jagged edges

Fit perfectly with hers, and together you became whole

She was beautifully broken, and so were you.

      1. Oh, I most definitely did go read her work! I’m now following her. Thank you for guiding me to her site. Seriously… thelonelyauthor leads me, once again, to a place I never expected to be, but most definitely want to explore… 🙂

  1. I can see and feel the pain in this poem. Unfortunately, sometimes we meet with people that only want to take rather than give… Yet, the broken vessel shines the brightest..
