The Light Inside

How do you hold
shards of your heart
without piercing your skin?

Can you measure
beats per minute
when a million cracks are in it?

Tell me, can a
shattered heart
shatter again?

Tell me, can a heart
of fragments
matter again?

Must I put
this heart together
piece by piece?

Or can I
let it break
without it breaking me?

Will light shine
through its cracks
is the light inside of me?

However small
however tiny
there is a light inside of me.
