An excellent poem from Melanie. How many people do we all know (or have known( who fit these words perfectly.
Duck tape is not just silver anymore
but you still can’t fashion a quick fix
for the damage you’ve done
More than a paper heart
has been torn apart
You would know this
if you just opened your eyes
how is it you don’t stumble more
walking through life with your eyes shut
and fingers in your ears?
Childish games of “la-la-la I can’t hear you”
no longer serve you well
