He plastered cracks

with thin veneer,

deflected scrutiny

with hollow jokes


to laugh the scars

away; but meeting

Love has peeled his

bark’s resources,


stripped bare his


Terror and pleasure

co-mingle in this


tango, the steps

of which elude his

balance;  baring

all, he stands naked


and shivering, but

for the first time,

cracks are letting

the Light of life in…

    It’s not easy to live with cracks, but we are just cracked pots (2 Cor 4:7)…without them how else will His light escape us…fear not the brokenness but the solid wall.

    I agree with Tina … Thanks Melody … I think we can identify with and relate to others’ obvious cracks and weaknesses so much better than with pretended perfection …. Thanks for helping us be real 🙂

    It’s always fascinating that it is the crack that lets the light in.
