Duct tape

something simple gray and useful as hell

you say it fixs everything

but can it fix me?

can it fix the broken fragments of my heart

that were left over when you casually tossed it

back to me when you said "we're through, i don't love you, if i ever did"

It can't

believe me, i've tried

i've tried everything

but it won't work

The heart

is the one thing ducttape can't fix

and i live with knowing that forever.
