What do others see
who look at me

I am cracked pot
bird with broken wing
severed vine
unwilling shrine

I am fractured dreams
snuffed hope
lost place
empty space

I am choked roots
felled tree
stripped light
misery

I am watcher
observer of his demise
unconditional-lover
mourning mother

gutted, lost at sea
shine lamps for me
