Pieces

Standard

If they ask you about me,
Tell them
“She was the only girl
Who loved me with honesty,
And I broke her.”

I have loved you
And all of your pieces
If I could
I would fold them
Within the silk
Of my own flesh

I would carry your tears
Within the wells
Of these open palms
Saving every single
Sadness
And moment of joy

I have loved you
With every aching piece
Of this soul
And my tears, they fall
Lonely
To the ground.
-LM Jones

  1. I knew it was gonna be good just from that beginning quote. Read it once with all the emotions stirring as your words will do, read through it again and thought what an achingly beautiful piece of poetry this is.
