In Pieces by Megan Tyler

in silence
where I lay with roses
and their thorns
where i bleed
where i cannot speak

there is another word for this
there is another way for this

in silence
I forgive the shock of my lips
and break into a million pieces

it flashes before my eyes
wounds heavy and scarred
another darkness poured into
my throat
