(g)litter

I fell like bright confetti
till I broke myself inside.
Now my shards cut just like glitter
laced with cyanide.

  1. Pain is the great teacher.
    That’s what they tell me.
    I haven’t figured out yet
    What I’m supposed to see.

    My heart breaks and breaks
    I surrender one more time
    There’s peace only in presence
    Then sometimes light will shine.

  2. Your words began benevolent
    Compliments were most prevalent
    Uttered with purpose fraudulent
    Soon they became ambivalent
    And finally turned malevolent
