Hairline Cracks


Hairline cracks that mar the beauty

Of a heart that love’s you true



To fix the little fractured jagged edges

Who can tell me what to do



Teardrops wash away the splinters

But can they act as super glue



To hold the hairline cracks together

To make love once more feel like new



Throwing hurting stones is often easy

But there’s real danger in it too



How many little cracks will it take

till love’s shattered through and through



Hairline cracks can break hearts forever

Till they're just shattered pieces out of view…

"Hairline Fractures" unattended propagate into massive, destructive fault lines that create irreparable damage. Best to address each little one quickly and see them mended before it's too late for love to recover. This poem has such a natural flow and meter Felix. Happy Thanksgiving my dear friend. I did you love and peace. Jon Michael
Reviewed by Sheila Roy 10/22/2010 true, and something we learn with time in a relationship. There are invisible lines we must constantly avoid. Great poem, Fee. Hugs,

This is beautiful Felix and a hairline crack is never too late to repair. All one has to do is use a piece of one's heart to mend it forever.

Love ya face Cuz XOXOXO, Rose

Those "hairline cracks" do more damage than we realize, especially over time. And if we're not careful, they can become virtually impossible to repair...the heart, like the mind, has a memory!

Fee, I was just having this discussion this morning with the Director of my new play.
We were talking about something that was on the BBC network, about how the Heart has memories. Has it's own feelings aside from the mind. As I have always written, I believe this from the bottom of my heart...It also stated on that program, that when someone gets a heart transplant, Your poem brings that fact to heart. no pun intended..

As always your poetry touches me.

Peace, love and light,

Even the smallest of hairline cracks need tending to, seems in life so many are overlooked, causing complete breakage...your poem speaks of wisdom from a heart that knows~

so true-we should be more careful with our love!

Powerful poem ~ This is a most compelling observation.
These hairline cracks can do more damage than we know until it's too late.

Truth....penned to perfection! Loved this, Fee!

Reviewed by Richard King 10/20/2010
Nicely done Fee. Hairline cracks become major craters if left unattended. Too many teardrops eventually become a torrential downpour. Constant attention to the little things is a fulltime requirement and even that often isnít enough. Thanks Dick
