When people look at me
They don’t see me
or how I struggled
or the cracks
I had to glue together

No one knows
that every little ripple
might break me
for good
Hoshi Sep 23
The ache
The tearing in my stomach
The yearning for something that isn't food
Not food for thought
But something that fills me up
Thick raindrops that sink beneath your skin and into your bones
Being soaked all the way through into your heart
Feeling that electricity that nobody else can spark
The weight of water on your face
Pricking your eyes
and running its way down your hair
All of it
All that love and mystery and deepness
that's being in love with being alive

Sure the stars are pretty
But
Look
At
The
Night.
The deep blackness of the never-ending pit that is sky
The entirety of its beauty
You expect the night to frame the stars delicately
But if I were the night sky
I'd swallow them whole

Give me a love for living
And I shall make myself whole
There will be nore more broken pieces
Only chips
Only cracks
But that does not make me any less whole
For a window that is cracked is still a window
Poetic T Sep 2
We are on a marble
                Of finite cracks.

Let us not be the ones,
     To shatter the purity

That holds the uniqueness
   Of every thing together.
The ugliness of the world
Slips through the cracks,
And hides behind doors,
And the dark veil of the night
That provides protection
For the unkind and the lonely.

i
am
defined by
my flaws,

my imperfections.
If you were absolutely perfect, Would you even bother to even think of working on your flaws..filling the cracks...melding the pieces? What would that make you? Would you grow?

The porcelain shell of his,
Hid his vulnerabilities
As he went on to only find
Cracks that expose him
To the storms that
Rage over the cracks.
While the devil plays
His trill with glee.
He then realised the shell wasn't enough for his mind.
These walls are breaking,
I can see the cracks.
It's going to fall,
That wall.

I've spent years building this wall,
Now, you come
To break it down?
No, not my wall!

I'm trying to glue,
But hue.
With eyes blurred,
I see nothing;
Not even bird.

These walls are paving in,
What now?
Just let it fall?
Or do I bow?
Definitely not bow!

Listen walls:
Just tear down.
I'm too grown,
I'm tired and I've tried.
I'm done!
Moments when you feel like all hope is lost is not such a good thing when you block out your Support System.

MAN .....
I Can Feel The CRACKS ... !!!
As My Body ... LACKS ...
The Youth It Once Had ... !!!

When I Could Withstand ...
Exercise Programmes ....
That Worked All The Muscles ...
That Slowly DO Crumble ... !!!

When Old Age GRABS ...
And Let's You Know ...

" Slow down there bro,
because you should know,
that your muscle tone
ain't there no more !
So, slow your roll
because your getting old ! "

You See ...
When Your OLD Bones …
And Muscles CRACK ...
In DIFFERENT Ways …
To When You Were A Lad ... !!!

It's Time To Ease Back ...
And ... RECOGNISE ... !!!!!!!
That Cracks In Your Body ...
May Well ... Subside ...

Like Cracks In Homes ...
Because of Landslides ... !!!

So Take Your Time ......
When Cracks Are DEFINED ...
Within ... Your Life ... !!!!!!

Like Those In The Pipe ... !!!
That Affect Young Lives ...
And Result In Tears ... !!!

Or Those That Appear ...
When Angst Is Steered ...
Towards ... Your Wife ... !!!!!!!!

And You Start To REALISE ...
That ... Married Life ...
ISN'T Working For You ... !!!

Because of The CRACKS ...
You ... REFUSED To View ...
When She Was Making Love To You ... !!!

And Girlies TOO …
RECOGNISE What's REAL ... !!!
Don't Let SWEET Talkers Make You Feel ...
As If NO Cracks Will Ever ... REVEAL ...

The Person BEHIND ...
All Those SWEET Chat Up Lines ... !!!

That May ... In Time .................
Become BITTER When FIGHTS ....
Make You Recognise WHY ...
You ... NEED To Take Flight ......

Because That Guy ...
AIN’T ... Mr Right ... !!!!!!!!!

You See Cracks Can Hide ...
If You Don't Choose To OPEN Your Eyes ... !!!

And Make SMART MOVES ....
Rather Than Take Rides ...
That ... AREN'T SO NICE ... !!!!

Once *** And Smiles NO LONGER Provide ...
What You THINK Will Link Your Souls For LIFE ...

Because Spirits CRACK ... !!!
So ... THINK About That ... !!!

Before You Make Plans ...
With Those Whose ... STANCE ...

ISN’T Firm Like Land ...
That's … EVEN And FLAT ... !!!

Well I Guess That's THAT ... !!!
When It Comes To FACTS ...

But FACTS Like Tracks ...
Where The Bass Is PHAT ... !!!!
Are Where What’s CRACKED ...
Can Be FILLED And WITHSTANDS ...

The Pressures We Face ...
As Our Bodies AGE ...

I Wrote This Piece ...
Because My Back ...
Said To Me ... TODAY ...

Via ... PHYSICAL PAIN ... !!!

" Right now old boy,
I can't take the strain,
of the exercise,
that you should maintain,
but maybe these days,
in different ways..."

So Now My Brain …
Has Found A Way ...
To CRACK Away …
Via Pen and Page ...

To Write These Words ...
That ... DO NOT Hurt ...
Quite Like MY BACK ... !!!!!

And That's A FACT ...

Like It Is To TRY HARD ...
To AVOID The ....................................

.... " CRACKS " ....
The ageing process has many lessons to learn from, especially when, it comes to ones' body !

Pretty weeds
growing from the cracks
of the ground.
