The Room Brightens

The room brightens
And that's when I see them 
The beautiful landscapes
The beautiful moments
Portraits 
And then in that light
That gentle light
They unhinge
I run
To catch them
To hold them
And over and over they somehow slip
Through my hands
Over and over
And in that room
Of endless shattering 
I fall to my knees
Cover my ears 
Close my eyes
Screaming
Feeling each shard
Tear me apart
A part 
Apart


I’ve written a lot of poems over the last year. I’d like to share some of them. This one is from May 2021.
