The Cracked Mirror

I look at the glass, cracked,
Worried about the mirror,
I keep staring at it,
A day goes by,

Each day, I try to mend it,
Some cello tape, some glue,
Something that might just fix it,
My obsession is my passion.

But with each passing day,
I make it worse,
My husband says, we need
To have it removed.

I don’t wanna let it die,
Even by the cracks,
I cut my finger,
Trying to fiddle.

It hurts, it pains,
I take a hammer and,
Start breaking it up,
A tear rolling.

That mirror was me,
I saw my life,
A reflection of it every day,
It was my marriage too.

And it is falling apart,
No matter what I do,
I can’t mend that,
I will have to let it go too.
