Shattered to pieces - a poem

The mirror was cracked
then broken; somehow
shattered into a million pieces

Like my heart
broken and shattered
by your neglect.

illusion or real
will ever be seen

Nor felt by me again.
So saddened
staring at the shattered glass

Of my heart
each shard a sharp point
made clear to me.

Not knowing what to do
what to say
how to mend

The only reflection
you saw
was yourself

While I saw always
two -- we two together
in the reflection of my heart

You never understood
my heart mirrored
the two of us

I never left you
I was always there;
however, you left me.

My love for you
deep and heartfelt
only for you

You never stopped
to listen
to what I had to say

So it shattered;
bitter pieces of our love
splayed upon the floor

How do I mend
the shattered glass
of my single broken heart so fragile?
