i found a mangled body
and tried to fix it.
but i got too close
and ended up cutting myself
on the jagged remains.
the bleeding hasn't stopped.
Getting close to someone will always hurt no matter what
I agree, beautiful piece.
This is a beautiful piece that I think some of us can relate to Good job on the extended metaphor.
I can appreciate and relate with the meaning - but I have to disagree. Getting close to someone doesn't always result in despair or anguish. Only when we feel pain do we appreciate love. Those old scars of lost love become who we are - a person that will eventually be loved and understood for all our mistakes and inadequacies. Having said that - this poem is still incredible. Nicely done. Thankyou for sharing.
You're right; every experience is different
Sometimes even the tiniest thing you do to people can make a big impact. I wish people would learn that.
