Broken Poem by Tiffany Rose Moczydlowski


Rating: 5.0

''Are you okay? ''
His deep, warm brown eyes gaze into mine
I break eye contact
''Yes, I'm fine.''
The lie rolls off my tongue
Easier to tell every time
He takes my hand in his,
Lacing his fingers around mine
''No.'' He pauses ''You're not.''
His voice is so tender, so concerned
I bolt upright, startled
There's no way he could know...
The look in my eyes betrays my emotions
There's no way to deny it
He knows
He flips my hand over, exposing my naked wrist
A single tear falls from his face
Landing on my wounds
''Why? ''
I cannot contain myself any longer
I cry
I sob, my raw pain cascading down in a flow of tears
I heave, my body shakes
I rest my head against his chest
In desperate need of comfort
''It's too much.''
My breathing calms down, but I'm still a wreck
My eyes all red and puffy
Cheeks glistening with tears
I look up and catch his eye
''I don't know what to do anymore.''
He cradles me, as if I'm a delicate, porcelain doll
Wrapped in his embrace
He's silent
His eyes speak all the words he needs
He hugs me tighter
As if he'll never let go
Now I know
Now I finally have someone
Who will be there
Someone who really cares
Now I know
I don't have to be alone anymore
Now I finally know

Your use of speed to give your poem a frantic nature after the line I bolt upright Is truly a gift. But I must admit I am left in a frantic state like something is missing. Now don't get me wrong I really enjoyed and liked this poem It is my favorite out of all of yours. *****just a suggestion******* try this Who will be there Someone who really cares Now I know I don't have to be alone anymore Now I finally know........... For him My wounds will grow old.
