It lies in broken pieces around us

Glass littering the floor

Like dying stars



Like so many other things

I thought I could trust you with


You told me you were never good

At keeping things whole

And I thought you could change


Maybe it was my foolishness

To think you could handle

Changing the lightbulb

I loved this! Was not expecting that twist towards the end. I would love to get some tips on writing this way.

Can you check out my blog?

How many ex-lovers does it take to change a lightbulb?!
Nice poem Mahika and a good interpretation of the prompt.
Thanks for posting. Colin.
