Shatter Me

Shatter me with your passion and send my soul into the wind. That I may fly towards another and share your words. Cradle me against the torrent of humanity, the tears of anger and sadness of others wash over me. I close my eyes to the pain of the world for a second, a second just to myself… Laying down the boulders of others, I take up my own cross and begin to climb The Hill. Inadvertently I follow the footsteps of others, but I do not share their trials or their story. The mud from their tears provides a fresh pavement for my own footsteps to leave their impression. A trail of humanity for the next.

  1. Beautiful! I love the last few lines. It’s so true – we may seem to be going on the same road or direction, but we don’t share the same trials and pain. Love that imagery of “the mud from their tears” in particular. I guess, we each leave our own unique imprints along this trail called, humanity.

  3. Just.
    Your sentiments and imagery are emerging so so beautifully.
    Either that or I am just getting more and more attached and familiar to your prose. But it still makes me stop and breathe.
