    It's a phrase. What do you think it means? Where did you find it?

    ("Pieces of me are all over the place.")

    It's a phrase; a sentence needs a subject-verb pair. Pieces of me is a song title Ashlee Simpson - Pieces Of Me lyrics | LyricsMode.com, and what it refers to only the songwriter truly knows. To me, the phrase refers to the complexity of a person's thinking and behavior. In the song, she sings that the person she loves understands the pieces of her (life).

    Not everybody has heard of Ashlee Simpson's song, so mentioning that song does not do enough to offer additional context. (I apologize for not mentioning how valuable context is.)

    I think "piece of me" means being part of someone's life.
    but I am not getting the phrase "pieces of me" of your poem.

    No, it doesn't. And that's not what you asked about.

    I think it means different parts of my personality. (I think the phrase has a similar meaning in Ashlee Simpson's song.)

    (But I am not getting the phrase "pieces of me" in your poem)

    Why did you use "in" in the above sentence? Can't we use "of" there?
    If not, can you make me understand why not?


    *Please correct if there are any grammatical mistakes*

    And thanks alot for making me understand what does it mean in ashlee's song. :)
