If the walls could talk...for poetry thursday

I have less than 5 minutes to write this entry. But I missed last week, and it bummed me out. So, don't expect brilliance...come to think of it, do you ever expect brilliance??..... Crap..that took two minutes..

Here goes..

Facade

The trick
I suppose
is to have
the outside
match
the inside.

Or else
the life
you know
is just a
facade.

You can only
paint so many times,
without
having to scape
to bare
wood.

For things
only last so long.
Old wood
no longer holds nails
no matter how
you choose
to glue it.

You have to
rip it down,
and start again.

No one
wants
to live in
a house
of cards.

We all know this, but it's one of the hardest things to do, until it comes to a push.

sometimes the best things
come out fast and hard
and real...
there was so much i liked
about this,
having to scrape to bare wood,
old wood no longer holds nails...

i really really liked this!
