My Heart is Like a China Trinket

My heart is like a china trinket
that’s probably seen better days.
Covered by a brave patina
where hairline cracks cross and craze.

Where hairline cracks cross and craze
like a roadmap to despair
like a web without a spider
that time does little to repair.

That time does little to repair
for time is blithely unconcerned
that my china heart grows fragile
with every lesson it must learn

With every lesson it must learn
to weave more silk across the chinks
that living has incurred because.
my heart is like a china trinket
