Close

Everything is,
broken,

 

once,
a fearful word,
is all that remains,
token gestures,
meaningful letters,

swallowed,
up,
into thin air,

 

friendship,
nothing,
but ,
particles, travelling,
through air,
as we hit,
“accept friend request”,

 

it is meaningless,
everything under,
the sun is meaningless,
broken,
fragmented,

 

We are all,
no more,
than a number,

 

No one notices,
we flit and float,
in and out,
unnoticed,
forgotten.

 

Everything is meaningless,
we come and go,
with less care,
than waves on the shore,

 

nothing,
but,
numbers.

Broken
