Yeah, I know I haven't done one of these in a long time, and I know I should be working on 'I'm Nothing Without You' but I had to do this. I've been putting it off for so long. I had another poem, but it is lost somewhere. It's unfortunate, because I really liked that one. I'll try to find it, or worst case I'll rewrite it.

---------------------------------

Broken

I give you my heart, and you break it.

I give you my soul, and you shatter it.

You take my life and turn it to dust.

I am hurt, cut, broken.

How can I move on, when my broken heart is the only obstacle I face?

You no longer care, no longer in need of me.

I am useless.

I am broken without you.

Never again, I pledge, no more pain.

But you come anew.

You are rekindled by another, this time stronger.

I resist.

No more pain.

No more hurt.

I will not be broken again.

Denial.

It fills me.

Thoughts drift, silent smiles.

Denial.

No more pain, no more suffering.

I will NOT be broken again!

The barrier fades, day by day.

Soon it overwhelms to the point of leaks.

And I no longer can hide with Denial.

And now I'm happy.

And now I am not broken.
