just a fracture,
To be splinted,
to try to fix,
But if not,
Or malunion.
Re-break it.
Fracture is Soo like divorce. First we try to fix it but than re-break or even let it be.

Do you sometimes feel like a pillar

Like you are the last thing holding everything and everyone up

Like you are the last thread preventing everything from unraveling

So much so that you are not allowed to rest

That if you do
The hairline fractures in your foundation might widen

Might become cracks that are no longer safe

That anymore pressure will cause it all to collapse

And that at the end of the day
You are the only one eroding

The only one who no longer can stand tall and true

Can no longer be a pillar for you

To slowly become dust

Picked up by the wind
Swept away and forgotten
You can only support those around you for so long. Be selfish; care for yourself as well.

Why is it that when
I hurt myself
It takes away the
Hurt you caused

Your death caused a fracture in the foundation of the family
Trying to tie a tourniquet above the gaping hole isn’t an option
We all tiptoe around the pools of blood, but it still sticks to our sneakers.

Signs say stress.
I say the End of the World.

A mental break
Or a fractured world.

The walls of my mind tremor
The world falls apart at the fringe.

Acute stress, prolonged stress.
Acute suffering, prolonged suffering.

Good lord, its the end.
Oh God, the end of times.

I see hints, hidden in plain sight.
This diseased world, is apocalypse bound.

Yet they'll say I'm not mentally sound.
But the world dangles on a string.

I wish you were here
Instead you are there
We belong together
And it is not fair

A weekend never ends
When I am all alone
You are somewhere far away
And cannot get to a phone

I am going dancing tonight
But I will miss you the whole time
And while I am spinning around
You will be on my mind

I truly am in love with you
I would not break your heart
Mine is at the fracture point
Whenever we are apart
This is one of my better old ones

It was a clean break or so they say.
A simple fix.
No additional trauma
No need for drama.
It'll heal just fine.
Sure it was caused by the lover
of a girl who just became a mother.
She was lucky that their
"Poor communication,"
Did not end up
with a fracture that was comminuted.

I never knew
that a break could be clean or
that a fracture could be stable.

I'm still learning.

I've studied a lot of medical terminology for my classes and it just occurred to me now that I could use those terms as inspiration.

But you stopped loving me
As did
I
Our
Tiny Fragile Hearts
Nestled in our chest
Beat weakly as
Thin fractures
Creep
Up
Up
Up
Not beating
That same rythme anymore.
And You and I
Which was once
Us
Became You
&
Me
We smile
But now it is empty.
As close as family
Family?
What happens if
you’re not close?
Not anymore.
We,
H  a  v  e
Nothing anymore
Sepia coloured photos
Of nostalgia
The good ol’ days
Now it is different
The love
Of when we were young
Has all
But vanished
We stopped
Caring for each
Other
Now I
see
The heart is brittle
I can already
Feel
Pieces coming off.

If ever there was,
It is now, tomorrow, then.
Oh god, when am I?

I see through a fractured glass
Never will I have the option to ask
What do you think?
When two lives split
So do two minds
And I'm left wondering
What do you think?
Events, they pass
Moments in time
Love never lasts
But your opinion was mine
To value and crave
An intelligent mind
So brave
Curious
Sceptical
Blind
We fell in love
I gave you lies
And in the end
You stole my eye

I'll never again know the thoughts that you conjure and it is this, my eternal punishment, that haunts me.
