Piece By Piece

Broken_Angel_by_kinu_uni
I see him walking away
from what was once
the most beautiful porcelain angel
I see her pieces
littering the ground
and I just kneel there
in the center of her debris
Frustrated
sad
angry
“Who could do this?”
I ask no one in particular
“Why?”
When my tears stop flowing
I pull out my tube of superglue
and do my best
to put my angel back together
piece
by
piece
Knowing she won’t be the same when I am done
but doing it anyway
because I love this little angel

About: I’ve known some pretty wonderful people who have been hurt by others in needless ways. That is where this started. Who would do this and why? That was the genesis of this piece and I let it go where it chose to. I know I cannot fix anyone. I can only offer to help those I love who are in pain. So that is what I try to do.
