did you think
your words had smashed me?
did you really think you’d mastered the skill?
I must disagree
if you had any intelligence
a pale trace of intuition
or the vision to see beyond your warped mirror
you would know
I was already broken
your smoky, errant wind disturbed the air
just a smidgeon
shifting, dislodging the shattered bits of me
stealing their tenuous balance
causing my feelings to crash noisily around your feet
but it was a softer landing than you imagine
it was the work of a weekend
to mend the marks you wrought on my soft tissue
as for you
will your sick spirit ever heal ?
