Poem: "Shattered"

Via Pinterest

Shattered
By: Eve Estelle

Fragile glass, fragile mind,
Scattered pieces, tough to find;
Broken beneath, veiled with lies,
I am no longer fooled by my disguise.
No longer chained behind iron eyes.

With one honest glance, my mask disappears;
Now all that is left are the streaking tears,
The maddening pain and the nightmarish fears.
I pretended, I believed,
All that did was make a mind that deceived,
While deep inside I continued to grieve.

But now that I see past my cold eyes of steel,
I can begin to accept the ways that I feel;
Like shards of glass being put back together,
I can begin the process that will allow me to heal.

  7. I think one's mind and heart should be bare. Either one shouldn't or never wear a mask..at least to thyself.

    1. I agree 100%, umesh! It can be tempting to try and trick yourself or others into believing something that's not quite true, especially when the truth isn't pretty. Not a good way to go, though, and it's likely to come back to haunt you later.
