Broken

a stained glass vase  
put upon a shelf    
dulled from years of no sun    
   
you could see the beauty when you looked real close and squinted your eyes just a bit    
   
each curve was there    
and it still held the fake flowers from years past    
   
pushed it fell to pieces
   
feet threatened to take shards away    
   
but one single person fought to save this vase    
   
put it back together    
sliver by sliver    
then placed it where the sun would shine on it's broken frame    
   
it still sits holding it's own flowers    
glued together    
ugly at times    
but standing tall    
   
Though it seems at first glance    
to be perfectly whole    
it's not    
it's still very much broken
