Doom and Gloom

Broken

There was a time when I was whole, in body, mind, heart & soul
When I was flawless without seam, a fairy tale a perfect dream
A single piece with no divide, with faith, hope & love inside
Complete, entire & intact. All I need, nothing lacked
Then I met you
Now I find that I am shattered, broken bruised and badly battered
Cut asunder callously, by your fair hand so savagely
Smashed and torn totality ceases
Left abandoned in a million pieces
