Poem of the Month – October – Jagged Pieces
Confusion and hurt
when life and love
are fragmented images
in a broken mirror
of partial pictures
forcing them to fit
does not make them clearer
Love seen only
in the abstract
it was a safe place to be
Life in reality
too arduous, difficult
a price to pay
and a yearning to be free
But a magnanimous heart
always gives benefit
to a multitude of doubts
A habit to woo the nemesis
Glueing back the pieces
of a fractured life
Compassionate and forgiving
Awaiting a new genesis

Great words of truth and wisdom. We can never force the pieces to fit.

In the end we have to find the glue to mend what’s broken.

You’re always welcome Christine
I like your rhyme scheme very much. It’s a nice contrast – the orderly framework of the poem with the chaos it describes.
Thank you Sarah. I really appreciate it 🙂💕
Thanks so much Paul 🙂
nice job, Christine!
Well done Christine! As I read your poem this came to mind: The shattered pieces in the end cement together to become the mosaic of our fife!
Oh gosh Dwight that is lovely. You should write a poem using those words. I’ll be looking for it!🙂
I will write mine and you write yours and we will see how they blend! :>)
I did write one called Mosaic a while back. It was about all of us living in harmony. Here it is:
