Splinters And Fragments - Poem by Stevie Taite

I stole a splinter from your heart.
For being numb,
you barely noticed
So I took as well
A tiny fragment.
I hid the theft
'Neath my muse.

When my muse
had twirled it through
its tainted fingers
It carried it back
To you
In pathetic prose.

The shadow of my heart
hitched a ride
On your ego

How did a shadow lifted
Darken my heart?

Do you still bask
in it's shade
With a splinter
and a fragment
from your heart
Singing amongst
pitiful prose?

    It was a nice reading.

    I loved this part and yes it's elusive.

    I hid the theft
    'Neath my muse.

    When my muse
    had twirled it through
    its tainted fingers
    It carried it back
    To you
    In pathetic prose.
