Foreword: Another piece I wrote from a poetry prompt. My inspiration taken from thinking about people, relationships, times in my life I once cared for and held dear, now passed.
Shattered and battered
As the body it clatters
Down the roads of life..
Shattered and tattered
Over potholes spills warm grey matter
Lay motionless as roadkill on the highways of strife..
Shattered and haggard
Body lays flattened
Dead, motionless eyes blind to the light..
Shattered shards like crystals
Reflect an almost mystical
Broken jigsaw discarded on the tarmac called life..
Those passing by with life's clunk and clatter
Ignore an existence which once was
Body lays, motionless broken and shattered.
But just because the existence has shattered
Don't fool yourself into thinking
The aforementioned never mattered.
