Cracks Can Be Beautiful

“Families and old friendships will fracture.” —from Must Be This Tall To Ride

Pouring liquid gold into cracks to make the cracks beautiful and keep the functionality of the piece.

Before I know it’s come to pass
Reality closing in
Even as I let loose a gasp
All my moments lost
Kindling them with gold to shine



Biding its time until the right moment

Reaching beyond for that one precious second

Innocently (not so innocently) letting you think that you can do it

Till you suddenly can’t

Till you suddenly fall

Life likes to let you think that you are strong

Especially when it can pull the rug out at any time
