Hope springs unsprung and twangs
Unexpectedly but not unpredictably
Pinging out of the mechanism
Poking me in the eye
What I get
For Tampering with it
But what else could I do
It was broken
And it wasn’t going to fix itself
It was like that when I got it
The Inept Tinkerer
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?
