Tape And Glue - Poem by Tiffany Rose Moczydlowski

''My heart is very fragile, held together
By a bit of tape and glue.
It can't handle being shattered again;
Keep it safe and hold it close,
So that it might heal.''
Unable to deal with another blow,
I gave you the opportunity to
Revive or repress my happiness.
Would you dropp my weakened heart
All in due time?
I couldn't predict the outcome.
You worked your way into it.
The tape and glue fell away
As you took their place in
Piecing it together and repairing my wounds
With your tender love that fills
The once gaping, hollow spaces where
Missing components were never regained
And the cracks that were forged
Through the most powerful of pressures.
The last remedy that has a possibility
Of succeeding is your time, your love,
And your life.
For now my heart is strong,
With your essence infused within it,
But if you were to attempt to
Abandon it, when you provide its
Only structure, the slivers that remain
Would hardly be salvageable
And forced to be scrapped.
You've made a permanent mark
On this once battered, worn,
Torn and tattered heart, and
It can no longer survive without you.

    One impulse I feel when reading a poem which I wish to re-read some time later, is that poetry allows us
    to explore our innate aptitude to find parallels, similitude, metaphors and inter-connections in the world
    and life. (In 'Hamlet', the protagonist (who has psychic problems we
    may recognize) twits Polonius the courtier who agrees with the young Prince that a cloud is shaped like a
    camel, a weasel and a whale. (Act 3, Scene 2) . So 'tape and Glue' to mend a broken heart can pass perusal,
    if not conviction: be literary, not literal. So poetry transforms a romantic, sentiment or convention into something else, intangible, but not inaccessible to the imagination. Make them think anew. AM

    Not bad, the theme is well worked at, the idea itself not new, and perhaps the central metaphor tires towards the
    end, but a poem that will be liked

    I read this after reading Wind and the Winds and I think this is a thousand times better; you threw away the baggage of trying to sound like somebody else, and seem to have a voice that is more acclimated to yourself and makes you unique.

    The tape and glue fell away
    As you took their place in
    Piecing it together and repairing my wounds
    With your tender love that fills
    The once gaping, hollow spaces where
    Missing components were never regained
    And the cracks that were forged

    See this is what’s great, fantastic use of similes and alliterations which don’t sound hackneyed from other works, this is all you and that is why I think it is really great.

    Im not sure what to think, I had to read it a few times to understand, normally when I do read it just jumps at me, how people write I mean, this is good, it expresses how you feel with every line, just needs to flow together, but I still think you are a brillant poet for one so young I mean the first one I read just blew me away. Actually made my mouth dropp with a gaping look of wonder...smiles...anyway keep up the writes my friend...hope we are if you want you can leave comments on mine as well would love to see what you think.

    Beautiful simplicity. I like the story behind it; one person can come into your life and just make everything better. (Report) Reply

  • Juan Guzman (6/19/2012 7:57:00 PM)

    to put it simple the poem feels as if you started off writing about something and then drifted into writing about something else and ruins the mood, but i guess it was an okay poem. sorry (Report) Reply

    I'm curious about the punctuation in this poem. It reads like a long drawn out sentence and left be needing air. (Report) Reply

    When our walls break down and crumble away reseal them and make them stronger it is the only thing that keeps our judgment right instead of wrong. Very well written and people can always relate to these feelings. Keep up the good work good job. (Report) Reply
