duck (duct) tape

Duck tape is not just silver anymore

but you still can’t fashion a quick fix

for the damage you’ve done

More than a paper heart

has been torn apart

You would know this

if you just opened your eyes

how is it you don’t stumble more

walking through life with your eyes shut

and fingers in your ears?

Childish games of “la-la-la I can’t hear you”

no longer serve you well

~Melanie Thomason

  1. I love all the designs and colors of duck tape, along with their website on how to make just about anything ‘better’ with its use! Have you seen the prom dresses and tuxedos for prom? Fun times!

  2. I love this poem. It’s just wonderful.

  3. Reblogged this on Rethinking Life and commented:
    An excellent poem from Melanie. How many people do we all know (or have known( who fit these words perfectly.
