Glass statuettes

were standing on my shelf.

Some were there

                before I was born.

Some I picked up

                going through life.

I perceived that there’d be time

when I’d lose each one by one.

Nevertheless,

I took them all

for granted.

 

 

                                A noise

of broken glass –

a statuette in a shape of a cat

had fallen on the ground.

I felt

                pain,

I cried

                my heart out,

However, time swept anguish away

leaving just a small wound.

 

Distress,

                suffering

                               and shame –

are buried deep in my mind.

“Everything is granted,”

                branded inside my skull.

 

 

Another fell –

shattered.

Its fragment stuck deep –

my heart bled.

I regretted

lost time.

I hated

insensibility.

I swore

to change.

I prayed

for more time.

 

I’m afraid

one more statuette

is about to fall........

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Splinters.
