Intact

I am not so fragile

that I can not break
I have been smashed

into a thousand pieces
Scattered like stars

brilliant with sharp edges
Only to sweep up my slivers 

and mend my fissures
I have loved profoundly

and wounded deeply
I can do both things

at once, and want you 
To take me off the shelf

drop me, break me
I am not so fragile

that we can not love
