I pick up the pieces
of our broken life
scattered on the floor
Trying to remember
how it used to be
Not sure anymore
Continuing madness
Same, over and over
Insanity of the heart
Shattered in
a thousand shards 
of mosaic art
This the aftermath
as two exploding
stars collide
All that’s left
of what was once
a coveted prize

        But at the same time it is beautiful. Some of us can express some emotions better than the others. 🙂💞
