HARD TO BREATHE

By Lisa Huddleston

Where do the pieces of a broken heart go?

Do they swim through arteries or evaporate through pores?

One way is kept out of sight but lives forever within

The other is expelled and breathed into the vacant sky

Although I choose to let them go, some jagged shards remain

Piercing my lungs and leaving me gasping for air

  2. This is stunning, friend. I think I know these jagged shards; I’ve written of my own sort. In my case, they’re scattered, broken memories of dark and painful moments. Mirrored shards, they reflect a kaleidoscopic chaos sometimes external, always internal. You and I will see those shards lie down…dissolved, harmless, representing nothing like eternal truth that will define us then. Love you.
