beautifully broken

its like they took a piece of you
the most important parts
ripped them out
and pushed something new inside

ive got nothing left
rattling dry bones
tattered shards
billowing sun dried remnants left out for dead

i can hear the sea
the chirping of the birds
the cool breeze and the sunlight

but my heart is empty
my soul desecrated

nothing left inside to love
no hope
just brittle remains of what could have been
