Only You Know

Of brokenness

I’m in a million pieces
and only you know
where the cuts have fallen.

And only you know
how sharp the blade was.

I’m in a million pieces
with jagged edges
and only you know
which edges can seal
and which will stay put,
dry up and scar into numbness.

I’m in a million pieces
wherein each piece is a rubble
from the mere dichotomy
of whether to love
or to love again despite.
