We are planets

Today you sent me a message that broke my heart
I know it broke because I heard
all these little glass splinters
fall like rain over my ribcage and into the pits of me
It didn’t hurt because you were cruel to me
but cruel to yourself and
when I cannot be there to pick up pieces of you
strewn about over the bathroom tiles and spattered on the mirror
Hold them together against you until your joints pop
with teeth grinding sound
back into their homes and you are limber
Sit with me and watch our bodies breathe
See, our reflections are masters at deception?
You think I am perfect despite my heart saying no
I think you are perfect despite your heart saying no
We could, maybe, fix this
