Crumpled Piece Of Paper - Poem by Anitah Muwanguzi

Lies discarded on the soles of your feet

a shadow of what she once was

crumpled piece of paper

broken glass, broken pieces of her heart

lie scattered all around you



The clock just struck midnight

she takes flight,

with broken glass sticking out of the soles of her feet

her face a vision of fright, horror and a zillion open wounds

wings broken, unable to fly she crawls towards you

hoping you will stitch her up



At least close the open wounds,

help her get to her feet

but you wear self preservation like a cloak,

you will not be bothered

she means nothing to you now.
