Broken Sky

Post by anonymous08 » Mon Jun 25, 2007 12:18 am

the sky broke today

and fell down in a million little pieces

they drop drop dropped onto the stone statues outside

the magic that made the stars sparkle

soaked into the earth, the leaves, the people

all started to come alive

and suddenly the ground sank when i stepped down, branches trembled in the wind

the people

oh, the people, as they ran about, shouted, smiled

unaware that they had ever been stoic

as if the ages of darkness had been simply a second in time that only i had noticed

i scrambled to pick up the pieces of shattered canopy, to send them back above

but they ran through my fingers, slipped from my hold

so hopeless i surrendered

and now, for a second in time, only i notice the gaping hole overhead.

the world moves on.
You couldn't be suicidal if your life depended on it.

there i go again, pretending that i'll fall

don't call the doctors!

they've seen it all before

they'll say just let her crash and burn

she'll learn

the attention just encourages her.

so moving; i felt every word in that poem. wonderful!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
