Yesterday's Promise

She held all the pieces.
For years and years, she held them all
And she promised that they somehow fit together.
At first, with fear’s reluctance
I gave them stingily.
But faith grew—chiseled and molded with well-intentioned cultivation
Until I couldn’t wait to hand her every scrap.

I gave her all the pieces
Trusting they were safe.
And they were… for a while.
I didn’t know that,
In the end,
The jumbled bits would scatter on the wind.

I snatch the fragments from the air
Lost jigsaw pieces dressed in my emotions
I study the painful gibberish
Longing to fit them into something real
Something whole
But seeing only how each shard reflects
The dark place where she will never be again.

  1. Nice. The dark place she will never be again. - I feel that way now finally past the pain and self-loathing
