Gracefully
falling           apart
as the hours tick
past like money

the drain.


Hopefully
picking up the
p i e c e s
faster than
I lose my energy
for doing so.

   Perfectly
 knowing that
my story is not over.
And it will never be over
   even once I find a place
to call home for this heart—
my beautiful, precious,
 giving, eternal
   heart.

  4. Ahh, I wanted to help you pick up the pieces. <3 I like the way you used space and shape for meaning. And starting each stanza with an adverb worked helped set the tone.
