Broken China

Such a wonder, such a beauty to behold You are undoubtedly a fortune to be sold Alas – you are now in pieces impossible to be put back together. No matter the weather My memoirs of you shall never be severed All the times we laughed together on those cold winter nights You were my warmth, my fire in the dark But now you are nothing but a broken lark The pain of your uselessness tears my very being apart Just the sight of you leaves me with an empty heart It is clear, it is time for us to depart Leaving me with nothing but memoirs of your open heart In all your glory, you are no more You are just fragments of a past that can never be restored To my heart which I sincerely adored.

Great use of metaphor in this one. It is expressive and emotive. Way to go. We don't ever really know a person, but when we get close in a relationship or marriage, sometimes we find out the hard factual truth about them. Congratulations on being on homepage. Sara

Aha..have looked through a few of your poems and they are quite fascinating unlike mine that depict another story or a hidden meaning to broken pieces. Cheers anyway.

Thanks for sharing this. Welcome to Poetry Soup. I welcome you with the love of the Lord, expressed by John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." The Lord's blessings be with you.
