"Does it matter / If I shatter?"



The street is full of potholes

I suddenly realize

An emotional shakedown

The fence is full of knotholes

All suddenly filled with eyes

Another nervous breakdown

In the making


I can feel the memories

In the shaking

Of my hands at times like these

In the breaking

Of these icicles tinkling

At my bleeding feet

As frozen tears are sprinkling

Down the snaking street


I fall into a pothole

And I disappear

You watch me through a knothole

Far away from here

The stars are falling

I am too

And I am calling

Calling you


Does it matter

If I shatter?

Interesting write, Steven. That's the big question, isn't it? Does love that has left us care if we breakdown completely? A very sad state...
