Missing Pieces- A Poem


Missing Pieces


There are lies we tell ourselves

to not face the reality

of broken promises, unspoken words

We look outside for answers, for truth

as if it could be found in

someone, something, anything

and still find nothing

What if the missing pieces were inside?

in the stillness, the void

that holds everything

the thread that ties it all together

and unravels the truth all at once
