Hope springs unsprung and twangs

Unexpectedly but not unpredictably

Admittedly

Pinging out of the mechanism

Poking me in the eye

That’s

What I get

For Tampering with it

But what else could I do

It was broken

And it wasn’t going to fix itself

Besides

It was like that when I got it

Not!

My faulty

Nope

Not drowning

Nope

P.S. Clockwork hearts may very well be water resistant, but that does not mean they are waterproof. You can cry on them, certainly. But just don’t drown them in tears.

Ain’t I just brim full of happy today?

Good grief.
