Half a Bridge

Someone broke me
when I wasn't looking
someone broke me
and hid my pieces in air
so I search with every breath
what my other pieces are
where my other pieces went

Someone broke me
and kept it a secret
Now everything I find
could be me
so I carry on illusions
and drop off memories 
I run to places I should have walked to 

Someone broke me
and forgot that they did
And I, forgot who did
So I’m here
looking everywhere

for me


  1. Ah you remind me of "Somebody almost walked off with alla ma stuff!" by Ntozake Shange

    "somebody almost walked off wid alla my stuff!
    & didn’t care enuf to send a note home sayin
    i was late for my solo conversation..."

    Someone broke me and kept it a secret....

  2. Nana, This is a very lovely piece. I have not been hearing from you. I will look for you soon.
