Broken Face (Inspired Poetry)

The time has come again, for me to be amused by my muse 😋;)
This one is inspired by Sarah’s sketch titled Broken Face – you should see the sketch to have a better idea behind my poem.
Please have a look at her blog and her beautiful sketches! 😄💜

They broke my wings,
Left me incapable of flying,
Yet when they desired a display,
They demanded, I should soar high!

They broke my heart,
And let me cry over its pieces,
But when they ordered,
I had to hide those tears inside.

They broke my spirit
Leaving me distraught.
No mercy I expected off them
And they didn’t disappoint.

With every piece of mine that fell,
I crumbled like a damaged figurine.
The only part left of me now, which you behold,
Are the sealed lips, enclosing veiled mysteries of my life.

    1. Thank you so much Sarah. Seems like a long time I wrote a poem, especially one in a collaboration with you. I don’t know how it comes but when I see an image/sketch/picture/photograph, the screws and nails start creaking! You are so kind to me always! 😊

      1. You´re very welcome, Syeda! Yes, it really was a long time, but I felt that I mustn´t insist on it or push since I don´t have any right to do it anyway 😉 and especially when you were enjoying your holidays! And a creative process such as yours shouldn´t be forced. You should only write, when you feel like it, and I will always be soooo happy if you do!!! It is such a wonderful thing that images inspire you the way they do!!! 🙂
