Cracked

Written by: Jillian Veitenheimer

Rooted to the Earth 
Your stare unmoving 
Infatuated with mirrored beauty 
That ignores your worship 
/ 
Cursed to your destined place 
Paralyzed by desire 
Loneliness engulfs the heart 
Punishment for those you broke 
/ 
Sculptured resemblance alongside 
A hand gripping your psyche 
Dissolving similar to your physique 
Fractured egg ventilates your ego 
/ 
There a flower blooms 
Lesson imparted by the gods 
Conceited are not blessed with love 
Thus the metamorphosis of Narcissus 
 
Poem based of painting by 
Metamorphosis of Narcissus (1937). Salvador DalĂ­
