Untitled 4/23/17

by Alexis Marie

brokentrying to gather up the pieces of my heart that have been scattered everywhere,
will you take a heart with mismatched pieces?
fingers glued together, late nights of gentle tending,
will you take a heart
with shattered pieces?

The words “All I Am,” razor sharp, prickling, bleeding –

Will you accept a heart with broken pieces/?

Will you take me as I am/?
