Default Pieces

I've heard it said
that prison
can break a man.
It must be true
because I've fallen in love
with pieces
of you.
From behind the walls
you arrive
in fragments-
cards and letters,
your thoughts now on paper
days later.
Phone calls and pictures
your voice, disconnected
from the warmth
of your smile.
A complete man:
Some Assembly Required.
Outside the walls
I collect the pieces
arranging them,
holding them in place
with my imagination
while I wait for you
to become whole

That is one of the most poignant pieces I believe I have ever read. Your voice & word choice could not be improved upon. In other words = Awesome writing!! I love it. If you have more writings this good, if you're not published, you could / should be. Thank you for sharing this with us
