Better Pieces

Better Pieces short poem

Photo by Vortexas32

You were old and new all at once
A deadly temptation
A glitch in my solid nature
And so I dove head first
And as I did I watched the pieces
Of me break away
To reveal an alien
A rawness, a vulnerability
I had never thought I possessed
Yet there I was
And there you were unchanged
And unaware that I was scrambling
For my better pieces

This is a remarkable poem of self discovery. I recall the writer Anais Nin saying, if you want to know who you
are enter therapy or have a love affair or both. Both therapy and love involve in dialogue with another person
so were bound to see more, feel deeply, grow emotionally. But this relationship has been wounding, the lessons are negative but necessary. What strikes me is the absence of anger, or bitterness, you are picking up the pieces
and I sense it is a strongrt individua lwho is doing this,. But as i reread this poem a second, third time I felt the measure of sadness increase, because the other person is so removed and pbliviious to the harm he’s caused,
That is unacceptable behavior,

There are nightmare dreams that haunt the sky From minds hard anchored to the earth And deadened thoughts from dead ones eyes Who’s living failed them at their birth. No Lovers touched by lovers thoughts Nor Eros arrows piercing hearts

Eyes Are Better Than Heart   Bream Zaza short poem

Eyes are better than heart. Heart cannot scan, But eyes can see good and wrong. Heart can be broken. But eyes provide tears, That makes you regret to love. I was told not to fall in love. The deeper it
