You broke me.
Shattered my heart into a million pieces
Leaving me all alone
To pick up the shards and put them back together,
A puzzle where each piece looks identical to the other
Yet none of which fit together.

You broke me,
Along with my spirit and dreams,
Drained my future of any colour
And deprived me of a happy ending.

You tore me to shreds,
Leaving behind a whirlpool of emotions,
Each fighting for the spotlight in my heart,
Making me wonder who I am
For months to come after.

You suffocated me with your lifestyle,
Wants, demands, desires.
Too much thrown at me all at once to handle
Pushing me into overdrive,
Making me lose my mind
And most importantly, my individuality.

And in your memory I am left as a failed experiment,
A doll
Which you couldn’t design to please you the way you wanted to.
A plaything, discarded once her trial expired
And a better one came along.

And no, I am not grateful.
I am not thankful, happy or glad
Despite the lessons I have learned.
Because nothing can quiet my heart and mind
And erase the pain and suffering you have caused me
And I despise you for it.

Hayley: Beautiful story that has been well written. Something I will definitely read again. I loved how you could feel the tension between them and I loved the ending because It left it open to our imagination. I look forward to seeing to reading further stories by the same author.

Jessica McAlpine: I fell in love easily with this story. In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl. I especially love the idea of dwarves being seafaring folk instead of...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...
