I Paused

pieces
tattered
broken 
bloody
I fell apart
fell silent
sat still
it's what you wanted 
me to stop
now you see
this is what happens
I stop
and I fall apart
the thoughts attack
ripping me apart
my body shakes
mind screams
I rock back and forth
hug myself
tears stream down
you wanted me to pause
step back and look
don't you see it
it's how I coped
I kept moving
my mind had to race
if I stop then it tumbles
my carefully constructed walls
lies I told myself
I had to stay together
a whole body formed from pieces
no one seeing the missing bits
where is the heart
shattered into pieces
bloody
broken
tattered
