Collecting porcelain pieces of her fractured heart
the girl once so innocent, now wary and guarded
works to ease the pain from the knifelike shards
creating a masterpiece out of her broken parts.
Taking delicate fragments, she puts them into a mold
each piece a memory in the intricate winding maze
of love between a man, a woman, all the heart holds
as she melds them together with hot molten gold.
Because, they are her priceless treasures.
