How BrokenHow broken?How Broken by 2Stupid2Duck
How do you explain what it's like to be broken? How do you put the feelings, the pain, the betrayal into words?
You never can. The best you can do is to describe an image, and to hope for a fleeting touch of empathy from those who see your words and the pictures they create.
I see a tiny brown and white chic. I feel its desperation. One wing flaps furiously, beating the ground with the need to be free. The other hangs limp and lifeless by its side, broken and useless.
I see the desperate horror in its frantic movements. I hear the terror in its tiny squeals. It knows it is fluttering its way to death, and it can do no more than that.
And so, through the helplessness, it remembers being safe and warm and happy.
What hurts more? The pain of being broken, or terror of knowing that you are?
