Faded Cracks and Fixes

I will 
write you off as a failure
a disappointment
a waste of time and breath and space
a waste of tears and words and energy. 
I will tell whoever will listen
that you were a smudge on an otherwise clean piece of paper
but
it’s only
because 
       I think (I know) 
I cannot think of you in any other way. 
It cannot be your fault
that you broke me as badly as you did
and 
     I can (I hope)
fix myself so 
perfectly that the cracks
barely show.
