Shattered Man

There are people made out of sky. They wear clouds and the wind is their dance. They sob as it rains, and when their hearts break, snow falls.

There are people made of oceans. They glitter on the surface, until the chaos underneath rises up. They are a vicious and breathtaking mess of contradictions, and they will kill you for nothing more than going too deep.

You were the ocean, and the ocean never loves the sky back.

 
Bella Wolfe, age 15, from the IYWP's Image+Word camp
