" Pieces"
Jan 5th, 2004 at 9:31pm
 
    Standing on feet that were bleeding
by a cold and crashing sea
catching a sound in the distance
like a child gently calling to me
     I limped  for a ways before seeing
the brokeness under my toes
pieces of something once different
fragments of something once whole
     I was raining and crying in pieces
I was lost and alone on the floor
I was scattered and tattered and beaten
On the edge of a broken shelled shore
     I fell to my knees without feeling
the points as they punctured my skin
cradling a shell that was shattered
and crying as i saw her within
     She was tiny and silently hiding
in a corner of a very dark room
child of a father turned rapist
in the shadow of a childhood consumed
     I was crying and dying in pieces
I was shattered and torn on the floor
I was scattered and tattered and beaten
on the edge of a broken shelled shore
     I gathered the brokenness to me
while my tears washed away all the dirt
each little shred was a piece of the past
and I held in my heart the hell and the hurt
     My fingers imparted to each forlorn bit
the pain and the love that I felt
and there on the beach a new growth began
as among the pieces I knelt
     I'd been scattered and shattered in pieces
I'd been left alone on the floor
my teardrops were raining forever
on the edge of a broken shelled shore
     I was standing on feet that were stronger
by a wild and beautiful sea
and the song that I heard in the distance
was the sound of my SOUL finding ME......

This is soo beautiful.  Thank you for the wisdom of the words.  They are so gentle and at the moment I am trying to find a way to be gentle with myself and to let myself heal.  Your words have come to me at a very important time for me. 
with love and thanks

Not being antagonistic, but just want to know what's going on.

I went to www.darkpoetry.com and found 'pieces' which has been copyrighted by CRE.

Although the person that left the angry message was very aggressive, they had a point.

I don't think it is right to post another person's work and not acknowledge them, taking the credit for yourself.

Sorry, but I know how I would feel if it happened to me.

I agree with JJ.  I think the message was a little bit rough.  But I don't like people to copy others in any form at all.  It's wrong.  Just my thoughts!

Is the "Guest" person the actual author of this poem?

Is CRE a 'username' from darkpoetry.com or the authors actual initials?
