stop filling cracks with plasters.
- they’re not made for cracks
- they’re not helping.
you’re shining a torch into a black hole
expecting something to call back.
you’re plastering cracks with kisses and gifts
and since when have they been materialistic?
plasters are supposed to heal wounds
and although you desperately try to heal this one;
covering the ever growing crack,
with more and more plasters.
from the surface,
things look okay.
but sometimes cracks aren’t formed by us.
sometimes you can’t help earth from cracking beneath our feet;
no matter how many plasters we have.
