You are broken beyond belief; a puzzle I could not finish
Because I was too afraid of the end result
You were beautiful despite not being complete,
But still I was afraid
And in this fear I slowly picked you apart
Bit by bit
Piece by piece
Until you were as unrecognizable as I was
Scattered as I was
Desperately incomplete as I was
Because I was too afraid you would not be as beautiful
As the picture on the box.
