Intricate Shards

via Daily Prompt: Organize


He’s scattered

Thrown together with cheap tape and gluesticks

A mess of old photos

Forgotten scents

Long-lost melodies

And scraps of laughter


He’s not quite whole

He’s puzzle pieces

All from different pictures


He’s old newspaper articles

Outdated trends

Tangled yarn

Each piece a distinct color


He’s messy

But never confused


He’s a strange kind of confidence

The kind that’s pushed onto you

Forced into your bones by adversity


He’s sharp sea glass

A fierce type of beauty


He’s every form of alive

A being you can’t organize
