If It Ain’t Broke

She refused to budge

Or borrow.

She would not allow herself

The slightest


“If it ain’t broke,” she said,

Hiding sorrow –

Holding on to life

In tatters

Yet refusing to

Give in even

A stitch –

“There is no need to seek

A fix.”



For the dVerse quadrille challenge: Fix

    • I’m glad you liked it!
      And … I think it probably is a lot of people, to some degree, some more literally than others (you should see my dinosaur TV … it is one of those that has a slot for a VCR and another for a DVD … and it works. And I’m keeping it and using it. Because it works. So there.) 😉


  1. This poem I read twice, like a second glance into the mirror. I’m sure we’ve all been there at some point, or with some type of something that in reality needs fixing. Stubbornness often becomes a barrier.
