Treasure Island

Heath Harrington

Shattered


I'm a shattered reflection of what I used to be,
A simple shard of mirrored glass,
because a moment in time changed me.

I thought we had the right to disagree
but a brute of strength and towering mass
Shattered the reflection of what I used to be.

Broken and bleeding red was all I could see.
I awaken to being show-and-tell for a doctor's class
because a moment in time changed me.

They reformed me smooth as a calm sea,
but still I felt like a simple shard of broken glass
a shattered reflection of what I used to be.

A resemblance in the mirror is all I could see
because titanium instead of bone is all that lasts
in time. A moment that changed me.

I see the cracks no one else can see.
Eyes see me as broken glass,
A shattered reflection is all I can be
a moment in time that forever changed me.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
