Broken pieces

DSC04219We are all broken pieces 

Trying to assemble themselves again,

Some with edges smoothened by love,

Some with edges jagged by pain.

Carrying in them thoughts half-formed,

Wishes and aspirations, 

Some that perished, some that exist

In suspended animation. 

Hope does try to mold them 

So they fit like a puzzle, jigsaw;

Love does try to glue them together

And bond the edges raw.

We break into pieces 

And then turn whole

Rearranging the pieces

Assuming a new role.

    The concept of “pieces” is one I quite appreciate myself and have written at least a few poems for. I like your take on it with this one, how the pieces are molded and glued together. I appreciate the visual of “carrying in them thoughts half-formed…suspended in animation…”. Nice perspectives. 😀
