I’m cracked.

I’m cracked
and I’m broken
and I’m pretty much shattered

and I don’t want to heal,

because if I heal

(again)
it can only make it hurt
more
the next time.

staying
this way,
it will only sting a little
in the already-present,
ever-present cracks

(that you
and you
and you, too, have formed)

before I remember
I’m already

Cracked

and that is how
it just
is.
