Separated into fragments
broken and irregular
distorted by darkened memories
burned so black they’re now irrelevant
waiting for you to appear
to embrace me with your tenderness.
Some days, I do feel better
though I still wander blindly onward
hoping that you will hold my hand
show me what I cannot see
to recognise what I’ve failed to learn
solving my greatest mystery.
I’ve fallen way outside of the box
scattered shards upon the floor
teach me what I no longer know
help me understand these puzzles
please will you pick me up
and put the pieces back together.
