“Pieces of Me,” a poem in pictures

If you take me apart

I’m only small pieces

mouth

Pieces are parts

That make up the whole

torso

What is my arm without my mind?

What are my eyes without my face?

face

What am I without pain?

What am I without joy?

back

If you take me apart

I’ll be in pieces

hands

I’ll stay that way

Unless you put me together again …

You will because you love me

And would never let me fall apart

Or stay in pieces for long
