A Little Less Broken

11 0 0


I've been through Hell and back.

I have walked through the backside of the desert alone.

I have been through things you only read about in books.

I have learned from others' broken parts

and added them to my soul.

I take the pieces of people that they are too afraid to embrace

or admit and I add them to myself.

I am missing so many little pieces of me

that not even a divine act of Heaven

could recover.

But while I'm here on this earth,

being with you

makes me forget that my tattered heart

is barely breathing.

You remind me of my summer nights as a child,

fancy, shiny, and happy.

You fill my days with endless wonder.

You are my flashlight in the dark of night.

and,

you make me a little less broken.
