The Glass Box Breaks

When relationships come crashing down,

when that person leaves your life

the box explodes,

creating splintering shards,

which drive into you,

slowly moving

until an outside force –

memories, thoughts, associations,

strike your mind,

causing a smaller memory box within

to shatter –

they’re embedded,

the pain spreads

like a crack in glass,

with each smaller box

breaking and adding pressure
