What Was It All About?


Tilted heart made of lots of jigsaw puzzle piecesThe final text
scrolls through my mind;
memories of the game we played
without ever understanding its context.

`What was it all about?´
this drama of madness
that made us believe:
– There is a point to it all,

you know

stories are written
at small pieces of paper
fractions of scrunched fiction
bleeding from the tip of my pen.

It´s a creative piece of art
written in agony
by a broken heart.
Starting as a fairy tale
with a giggling laugh in its first line
it soon ends in sickness and with pain.

Who would ever believe
that our dreams were meant to get lost
in a jigsaw-puzzle of fragments

one million pieces of scrappy scenes

for no reason at all.

    What a great poem and statement!

    • Jackie Paulson,
      Many thanks for your kind feedback. It´s really interesting to see what one can create out of pain 🙂
      Welcome back whenever you want, I hope many more of my post will give you a piece to fit into your own jigsaw-puzzle.

  2. My entire life has been a jigsaw of sorts, I’m still looking for some missing pieces, can I borrow some from you? A wonderful poem. I am often mesmerized what flows off our quill’s from pain related issues. Bravo, well done.

      I wish I could give you some of my pieces 🙂 For the moment I´m struggling to put them together.
