In Limbo – A Quadrille

In Limbo

That longed for moment when sleep comes
Taking you from that state of limbo
where emotions are tethered
and toy with your mind

You submissively slip into slumber
allowing the heart to finally rest
Until dreams come
and you wake in a different realm

Broken

Broken

Broken like the wing
of an injured bird
Broken is the silence
of words never heard

Broken like branches of a tree
slowly bent and withered
Crippled by the performance
You so cruelly delivered

Feeling shattered and
broken in a thousand parts
It is the sliver of glass
that is optimism in my heart

A heart left in pieces
after you rendered your speech
You have exited my world
and you are now out of reach

I struggle to sweep away
the fragments of a dream
Scattered in explosion
A world of hope to redeem

Broken is my spirit
at the end of this line
Broken is this heart
You took what was mine
