A piece here.
A piece there.
Painstakingly,
The tragic mess is gathered.
Jagged edges pinprick
At tender fingertips,
A small price to pay
For the possibility of
Another restoration.

Remnants of congealed glue cling
To battered corners.
Shattered
Bits pressed together,
Yet nothing seems to match.
Fruitless attempts to fix something
That can never be unbroken.
Thousands of pieces unwilling
To form a whole.

Abandoned,
Cracked and broken,
A heavy heart lies
Scattered across the ground.
Hollowed memories-
Desecrated.
