I am so tired of being broken

Of waking in tears

Of wondering if anyone really cares

…even me.

This familiar sadness

A worn pair of shoes

I have walked many miles in.

It has become comfortable

…familiar, protective.

I want to reach out,

I want to connect

but beyond the tears there is nothing

…only numbness

I was broken long ago

Each peace shattered by a different hammer.

Some can be pieces can be patched

Fitting together, a mental Jigsaw puzzle.

Others were hammered into dust,

Swept away and given to the wind

How can you fix what you can not find?
