Good Night


I'll have you know,
I am not broken anymore.
It isn't that I've been repaired
Or even that I have healed.
It's more like
I have learned to live without the piece you took away
I grew another heart
To replace the one you shattered so joyfully
I forgave
To keep you from winning.

And now I rise
Up from the ashes of you, most sincerely
No longer will I
Sing with the echoes of what wasn't love
Dance with your corpse like an undead bride
For I'll have you know,
I am not broken anymore.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
