Shattered


From day one she trusted him, They were the best of friends. Then one summer he saved her life. They fell in love... or so she thought. With three little words, he had her heart in his grasp. He told her he loved her then took it back. He said he loved her but he said it to attack. She sits in her room at night and cries, she looks at her knife but picks up a pen insted. She scribbles a quick good-bye letter then picks up her knife, a lighter, and her mp3 player. She takes the letter and her few things out to the barn. Locking herself in the barn. In a pile of hay she lights the letter on fire. Quickly the hay catches fire. putting in her head phones she blasts her music and cuts a long harsh line in her skin, bleeding out quickly she feels no pain, only a dull throbbing as her undead heart slows to almost nothing. Her parents see the barn ablaze and know that's where she is. They try to open the doors but find it locked. They scream and yell trying to make her here them. Her heart stops and she feels no more pain, she sees nothing but darkness. No more does she feel the beating of her shattered heart.

    Shadow... you bring me there...with that Shattered heart, in the barn. I feel the heat of the flame, I feel the sticky wetness of the blood, from her open vein. I feel the nothingness that escapes with the smoke, her last breath -
    And I feel the emptiness as there is nothing left, no... no more pain.
    Very, very intense Write. Great Ink! ; -) Kelly. (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
