Putty

Megha's World

“Even the most
beautiful
of the stars
are taken
for granted
night after
night.”

My heart is 

broken,

smashed,

squelched

countless

times

broken,

shattered,

splintered 

in million pieces

it has suffered enough

no amount of assurance 

and a lesson in life 

can keep it 

from 

shredding,

tearing,

breaking

How do you survive?

you ask,

I use 

my giggles,

laugh,

and those 

occasional guffaws 

to keep it together

filling in the cracks,

those fault lines

seeping in the holes

to join,

hold,

bind

together

from tearing it apart

I use them as putty 

and prevent my 

heart from falling

apart.
