Porcelain

Hearts are marionettes with porcelain faces. Feelings are puppet strings that break and drop the porcelain to the ground. Love is the glue that mends the imperfect porcelain to its scarred former self. Yet through this, the marionettes put on a magnificent show. Our insatiable souls scream for an encore at every turn. The show MUST go on.
