Broken by Beauty
I wanted to write
for you
something beautiful
something
serene
a song
plucked
from
a dream

instead
I
shattered
glass
broke
my
bones
let my
skin
burn
to ash

I
pursued
the
beautiful
thing
only
to
realize
you
were
it

you were
the beauty
I had
tried
to create
to shape
to bring
to you

I forgot
that beauty
begat
beauty
and I
fell
again
into
drifting
dreams
serene
waters.
Today's poem is the result of vingler @jeff4122 utterly destroying my mind with the amazing song "I'll Be On the Water" by Akron/Family, which brings us today's Lyric of the Day: Go listen to the song.

If you have to stay
I'll be on the water
Catching the next wave
You can meet me where it breaks

Whoa! this is really good man! Such a tough song to match lyrically but i love what you did with the poem
@jeff4122 thanks man, I appreciate it. I almost din't want to make a poem around this song because it is so naturally poetic and beautiful
