Broken Words - Poem by Maya Hanson
All that falls from my mouth
spills from my pen
are lonely, disappointed murmurs
and echoes of broken love
And when I try to coax laughter
from these broken lips
they crumble from exertion
and let loose a sigh instead
And when I try to frame moments
in these broken stars
they end up slipping from my mind
in an avalanche of broken promises
And when I feel it
once in a lifetime, just for a moment,
I'm high on the world, you and me
can't waste time now pulling words
from this broken mind
"Write happy, " they said.
Well, here's your happy.
I've spelled it out
on this page for you
in broken words.
