466 – Cracks

Forget about
Sticks and stones.

Bones,
No matter how badly broken,
Eventually will mend.

Hearts…
That’s a different matter.

They may show
No visible cracks,
But the sharp shards
Will slowly cut you
From inside.

The pain
Will only stop
When you decide
You’ve had enough.

The pain
Will only stop
When you decide
It’s time to heal.
