shattered in the sky

falling
piercing
bleeding

  1. This is sad. Just how much families have to put up with external onslaughts can never be imagined. Nicely Loredana!

  4. These shattered glass that is like diamonds in the sky... also those you see when you squint your tearful eyes... that's the image I wanted for my poem too...

  12. Those shards of glass once clear panes with a vie to the future broken as the family is too with scars that will last many years. Emotive but effecting writing.

  13. The parallels drawn between broken glass and broken families is really striking! So much said in few words.

  14. The concise and so very carefully chosen words convey an image and a feeling that does indeed cut through the soul

  15. Ah...this last line...unexpected....great metaphor though.

  16. That last line makes the metaphor seem so real.
