Poetry: Shattered Soul

By Monica C. Voskamp

Shattered soul

Broken discarded and overused.

You are shattered

Yet still you breathe.


In your jagged broken pieces

You gulp in short bursts of

Twisted Oxygen

By allowing your soul

To shatter a little more.


A little more pleasure

A little more hurt

A little more abuse

A little more of anything

To numb all the ache

Of every jagged edge

Of every painful memory

Of every single day

You regret.


Shattered soul

You think you’re beyond repair.

Maybe it’s true

But maybe it’s not.

And that 50/50 chance

Is what you’ve got

Working for you.


Don’t worry how you look in the mirror.

Don’t worry what the past says is true.

Let your broken pieces be seen

For the agony they reflect

For the wound they portray.

Bare naked your broken

And give love a chance

To meet you there

Shattered Soul.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. 💕
