The Truth About Love

What is love anymore? 
Pain, sadness, hurt
I remember the joy of love 
It's beautiful 
So why is it short lived? 
Broken shards of glass on the floor
A memory of what once was
Whole, full, and full of hope
You think you see everything clearly
But it's not until it's broken
Do you see the imperfections
Mistakes, regrets, screams 
Can we ever clean 
The mess we made? 
You can piece a mirror back together 
Just like love 
But it will never be the same 
You see the flaws bigger than before 
The perfection you once saw
Replaced by an empty submission of acceptance 
But can it be better? 
Or will it only fail again 
Shattered pieces falling down 
Numb, cracked, china doll
Grasping for what you once had 
But it's not there 
The fragile pieces remain 
Painful truth hits you 
Can't fix what's broken 
You may never be fully whole 
But who is?

    No one is ever fully whole, that is why (pardon the cliche) you find the other to fill the gap, and visa-versa. You show your true colors and feelings in every write, Caleah... never stop. And if it's any comfort remember this: you would never know beauty were it not for those imperfections/flaws... because you would have nothing to compare it too.

    Hi Caleah! I think this is the first poem of yours that I'm reading, and I'm impressed! This is a lovely, reflective poem. Broken dreams and broken love can be fixed, although they can never replace the original. Then it is up to us....either we accept them as they are, or else we get rid of them and move on. // All the best for 2015, irrespective of any flaws. // paul
