Shattered


The earth beneath her feet was
shaken to its core.
It tattered, and it tore.

Rent into a thousand pieces,
all askew.

Never, not ever could she be 
whole again, 
or seamless, 
or free.

No.
 Not now. Not ever.
Not 
without thee.


This was another Magpie inspired poem. Check out the great writers at:

  1. This is so sad and so very true. Things happen and we have to work around those tears.

  4. A very emotional piece and yes the prompt this week seems to have tugged at the emotional heart strings.

  5. Would you think about making the last words 'for me'?

    'Without thee' is old fashioned, and doesn't fit so well with the modern words in the rest of your poem, which is a pity..

  6. Touching piece, scattered beyond hope, glimpses of lost worlds.
