regret ensues.

Cause of the damage

too distorted to view.

Scattered pieces

reflect the inner workings of the mind.

Slowly gather what's salvageable

and prepare to realign…

Jagged Edges

desperate to fill the cracks

searching for a substance that avoids the facts

that lacks

the ability to create a pessimist

a cynic in the midst

of the destruction that lies in chaos

with help that's ill equipped.

The task ahead screams consumption

of depleted energy

threatening to take hold

of a misguided and undefined reality.

Attempt to conquer the fear of an unstable result

engulf doubt in flames

and relinquish all fault.

Burrow deep into the art of Recreating


Smear the crevices with words of wisdom

that hold as they were meant.

Magnified to panoramic

bittersweet becomes the view

as you gaze on the mosaic

that is now the new you.

Art by Carol Maria Weaver
