Wanted: Missing Puzzle Piece
Missed Connections in Athens, GA
i have been trying to hold what little i had put together with duct tape and spit
then… i saw you. and then i saw you again.
… and i finally fell apart…
my stitches came loose and my fluids gushed out …
my splints broke and my bones shattered
my lies out weighed my honesty and they’re crushing my lungs
i lay alone on the floor now, every night
my wounds are starting to smell; red lines coming up my neck
sweat on my brow as a fever begins to start
the floor rots with my blood as the floor caves into the dirt basement
where i dug a hole six feet deep to lay in.
and the new blackheads are injecting their poisons into my blood steam.
i have been exiled from my home, you.
i have so many questions, but can receive no answers.
and the worst part of it all… i love you so much .
and the worst part of it all… i miss you so much.
and the worst part of it all… i brought this all down upon myself
my actions during the coming years will speak louder than any of these words
i really can not wait until another lifetime, just so i can find you again.
Note from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle Finder:
You can only imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Vaguely Artistic’s Flickr set titled, Puzzle Collage. I was looking for something with a puzzle piece theme and wasn’t having much luck. There are five fascinatingly detailed pieces in this set and it was hard to choose which one I liked best until I spotted the line “the dream that must come true” at the top of this one. Those words seem to define the turmoil our lovelorn Athenian is struggling with. Let’s hope the completed picture is a good one for them.
