romantic kamikaze (from FB September photo prompts)

she always did take heed

the idea that things may be closer than they appear

so she became a romantic kamikaze

and the rear view mirror

broke as she wished

it is too bad really

that the glass shards

remain ingrained in the tissues of her heart

so that any breath towards what she truly wants

makes her think of dying


one day

she’ll pluck them out one by one

and make a pendant for her neck

that will reflect just how wrong she was to think

that breaking the visions behind her

would stop the past from clouding her futures
