Prompt words: broken whole heavy accepting darkness embracing light strength

Form: Loop Poetry The variation I chose is: One long stanza, no limit on number of lines, no rhyming scheme, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.


Broken People

Picking up the broken pieces
Pieces of glass
Glass from bottles
Bottles of pent up feelings
Feelings of rage
Rage and hurt
Hurtful words
Words of cursing
Cursing not blessings
Blessings hard to find
Find a safe place
Place to hide and cry
Cry for loss of relationship
Relationships that are toxic
Toxic as in poisonous
Poisonous – full of venom
Venomous thoughts
Thoughts of escape
Escape the abuse
Abuse that breaks
Breaks the chains
Chains of brokenness
