My Mosaic Heart

Long ago I dipped my heart
In stone to protect it from
Life’s cruelty
With each heartbreak
A crack appears
I repair it with whatever
Emotional glue lay near
It is now a mosaic
Evidence of life’s wounds
It looks beautiful,
Like artistic marble,
Varied colors and textures.
Beautiful to the eye.
But oh so fragile to the touch.
