Fragile - Poem by Cena Rose

I saw a word today.


And I thought how similar that word was to me.

Yet no one knows how fragile I may be,

the wind could push me over with a strong gust

and I would end.


So fragile is my hunger, as I look at the food and say no.

So fragile is my skin as I tear it with my knife.

So fragile are my lungs, as I hold my breath under the current.

So fragile is my heart, as I hide my emotions and smile.

So fragile is my body, as I torment it with my knowledge.

So fragile is my life, as I try to end it.

So fragile is my soul, as I know I do not embrace it.

So fragile is my trust, that no one will ever read this.

So Fragile.

And yet death does not knock on my door.

    The phrase 'time heals' is not always true. I like that this poem shows the side that most tuck away until they are forced to deal. Keep writing. (Report) Reply

    An eerie sentiment here, Cena. Wonderfully done, though!
