Some days I feel irretrievably broken. 
I feel as if the shattered pieces of my soul 
were haphazardly scattered on purpose 
so that I can never again find myself. 
All the years of hurt, betrayal & disappointment 
have become etched in the sub dermal portions of myself....
scars so deeply written that only my bones bear witness to my shame. 
So deep in fact that although I know they are there, 
I can scarcely see them anymore but somehow 
can all too clearly see them in somebody else.
 I am irretrievably broken. 
Who fixes broken people? 
Please tell me, if you know.
Because I so desperately, desperately  need to be fixed.
