Marcella Haddad



a sculptor carved a woman out of stone

I want
(to be free from)
my love, I
(do not want to)
need him

she carved herself a new heart

I am afraid
that if I lose
(the part of me that is)
my love, that
(when I look into the mirror,
when I look into myself)
nothing will remain

out of something less like stone

without him
(and his plans for me)
I will not know the way
(without someone to tell me how and who to be)
I will not be the same.

and more like stars
