breaking point


it didn’t take much to snap
so little, in fact, that it happened in my sleep
and i only noticed in the morning
two different bracelets of different materials, designs, and expense
broke off my wrist
on two different nights, in the same week
as if to symbolically (and literally) remind me
of how they have a large ‘X’ stamped over them
ex-boyfriends
ex-friends
ex-men
ex ex ex
and even if i wanted to put the bracelets back together again
in hopes of making them complete
i don’t have the required missing links
and so, they’ll stay
a pool of silvery memories
broken
