Shattered Pieces

Written by: Donna Jones

The unbroken mirror reflected only my stare
Though when shattered the pieces lying there
Reflect more truth than they ever could while whole
The angled pieces now piercing my soul

Unbroken it only saw what before it I'd place
Never knowing the demons I often face
But the jagged sharp pieces before me now
Are finding those places where they dwell somehow

They seem to be taking me slowly apart
I look for me with no place to start 
I try to put them together but only find
A distorted image of my tortured mind

I gather them up and throw them away
Fearing my soul inside them forever may stay
I'll hang a shiny new mirror on the wall
And forget this day ever happened at all
