Breaking is always made to appear a lot more graceful in novels, poetry and films.

My breaking looks like a dark room in midday,
***** dishes which look too familiar to my insides.
My breaking looks monotonous,
Practiced over and over again too many times,
A play I no longer want a part in,
A lead I cannot escape.
