Broken

Your words cannot mend me
even glue has no effect
there’s more than cracks here
whole pieces are missing
dashed away
by the hammer of your voice
the blade of your fist
the incessant screeching
of your boot against my back

You’ve shattered the best parts of me
left me broken, broken
no longer a woman
nor even human
you’ve reduced me
I am less than a speck of dust
on your guilt-ridden hands
Your apologies chime
empty, empty upon my ears
