Broken by Beauty

I wanted to write

for you

something beautiful

something

serene

a song

plucked

from

a dream


instead

I

shattered

glass

broke

my

bones

let my

skin

burn

to ash


I

pursued

the

beautiful

thing

only

to

realize

you

were

it


you were

the beauty

I had

tried

to create

to shape

to bring

to you


I forgot

that beauty

begat

beauty

and I

fell

again

into

drifting

dreams

serene

waters.

Today's poem is the result of vingler@jeff4122 utterly destroying my mind with the amazing song "I'll Be On the Water" by Akron/Family, which brings us today's Lyric of the Day: Go listen to the song.


If you have to stay

I'll be on the water

Catching the next wave

You can meet me where it breaks
