I’m trying to remember a string of words.
A jumble of letters you once gave me.
I fear though
I fear they’re lost in a haze of sleepless nights.
You plucked them from clouds and rain
Wrapped in sunlight and tied with a frozen bow
It fell apart
It fell to shattered glass between my shaking hands.
I shed tears of crimson from wounds unseen,
injured fingers trying to fix the spider’s cracks.
I failed to
I failed to hide, to hide the broken marks.
Give up on fruitless tasks and weep,
For you see but never saw or heard me
You tore apart
You tore apart what became your heart.
