Broken

We walk on beauty
Breathlessly lost
Mistaking beautiful
For
Ugly
We lock up Effervescent hearts in
Rusty cages
And pretend our
fake
Is
Real
We find
Tranquility
In
Duplicitous people
All broken and dented

Why can’t we see the world through our hearts and let our souls breath
Why can’t we let the world be seen
Through the truth
Not a fake broken statue
Why can’t bandaids and duct tape fix us
Why can’t we live in a quintessential world
Where will we find our lost shadow beneath the hollow sun
Why can’t there be a light found

With big cities
No stars can shine
Because in artificial light
The truth can’t glow
In the midst
of the wind’s lullaby
Blowing over us

We shatter
