Reenas xploration challenge #277

This week for her prompt Reena has given us quotes to work with. I chose this one.

“Everyone has that moment I think, the moment when something so momentous happens that it rips your very being into small pieces. And then you have to stop. For a long time, you gather your pieces. And it takes such a very long time, not to fit them back together, but to assemble them in a new way, not necessarily a better way. More, a way you can live with until you know for certain that this piece should go there, and that one there.”
Kathleen Glasgow, Girl in Pieces

A minute

A moment

When everything you thought you knew

Is shattered

Into a million little pieces

You gather up the shards

And try to mend your broken heart

You try and try

But to no avail

You heart and mind

Remain broken

Misplaced pieces

Fall by your feet

Eventually, you’ll fix things

Back to how they were

It might take a week

A month

Or a year

But you will get there

You will heal from the trauma

Healing is possible

No matter how broken we are.
