Itty-Bitty Crack

(04/07/2016 National Poetry Month HitRECord Challenge)

There's an itty-bitty crack
in my heart
where the tape has frayed

Since you left me
that's the only thing holding it

I keep running,
chest tilted slightly back,
forward motion pressing the cracks shut

I dare never stop.
It's all momentum and masking tape.
