Cracked
vase
on
the
ground
loud
sound
shattered
to
the
floor
cracked
vase
is
no
more
loud
sound
go
away
cracked
vase
contorted
distorted
cracked
vase
no
more
time
all
gone
no
happy
no
more
proud
just
like
suzy
who
did a
duzy
on
her
life
when
she
opened
up
to
drugs

Favorite Quote:
I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
--Joni Mitchell

Brilliant metaphor and structure. Love this poem.
