things break every day

roses falling down

 

there’s a story I heard

it’s hard to remember

her mind

is losing it

misery infusing it

bruising it

confusing it

with what she thinks is real

and the rose grows against the gray

things break

every day

 

There’s something you love.

God’s gonna let it break your heart.

 

shattered glass

is falling

from

the window seal

the sky

wanted in

now the wind

sings

whispers

shrieks

 

from outside

it seems

desire and passion

await

beyond the glass

it seems

ghosts

were dancing

all day

 

shattered glass

still remains

things break

every day

 

It’s a good thing you know.

A broken heart.

 

blood concealed

entrapped

stuck in shields

never healed

until its flowing in disarray

things break

every day

 

I wish I could see

how

a rose

grows

from a tree unkind

 

hidden

blind

closed in and confined

its blossom died

 

then grew again

 

what’s drawing near?

a touch unfamiliar

gentle

soft

kindness

somehow saw her

 

petals

breaking

from the stem

petals

falling

from the wind

 

then blew again

 

goodbye tree unkind

goodbye rose branch divine

kindness

invites

her in

 

will things break

today?

 

petals

lavish

the King’s floor

 

and stay

 

today

what’s breaking is

a heart bound in chains

 

petals

falling…

falling…

falling…

 

Sky

rejoicing

Life

restoring

Beauty

no longer

in mourning

 

The chains were shattered.

 

things break

every day
