Unmasking Brokenness - Poem by MKGF ...

Tonight I write with a broken heart,
And a broken spirit.
I write without tears,
My heart is too broken for tears.

Each thought, each memory
Brings sadness to my mind.
My soul no longer soars,
My mask…blown away.

I feel as if my chest
Would burst from sorrow.
It feels as if it is being broken to pieces,
And inside I am more shattered.

Tonight I write
With my eyes closed
And my heart full open,
But each scream is swallowed within.

Tonight I write
Shattered as if a broken glass,
And I can’t seem to pick up myself
From this brokenness.

Tonight I write
Without a hope,
Without a light,
Without a tear.

I shall wear my mask
Once more.
