Broken reflections surround my soul
mirroring my pain and sadness.
Disappeared in an instant
after fighting through a jungle of injustices.
Words became weapons to defend a private life
that shut me out like a leper in rags.
Beats for no one, just listen to the echoes of a quiet
heart that is deflated and dead.
I gave you the truth but you refused
to see through the dark glasses that make your world black.
Destroyed by hands that once held me tightly
and caressed me gently.
Lost and afraid.
I wander down paths with my compass pointing toward you
but you’re not there. My destination has been cancelled.
