A Life Without You

A Series Of Poems

A Poem By: Martina Garcia

stained glass


you left me a mess

forced to pick up my own pieces

i cut myself in the process of gathering them all

i want to put myself back together but the pieces are too small

will i be able to be who i was or am i to shattered to remember what piece goes where

you made me realize i do not know who i  am without you

so i will turn the flame higher

i will melt my broken pieces

i will shape them into something new

yes they are different sizes and colors now but once placed together they will be beautiful like stained glass
