You are in a million pieces
scattered like sand.
You feel as though you’re beyond repair

But I am searching for you; each fragment.
And slowly I will gather them together
no matter how long it takes.
And I will rebuild you
like a divine mosaic.

Then, we will sit together
to look upon it.
You will realize how beautiful you’ve become
having been broken
and that the destruction itself was exquisite beauty.

You will grasp that such beautiful art
requires agony
and that, in actuality, there is no separation
between the agony you endure
and the art you are becoming.
