there is a crack in the world
a fissure…    a rupture…   a split
whatever word you care to use

in the molecular structure of  my world
there is a breaking point
that has been reached

…no…
it has been overrun…    surpassed…    transcended
whatever word you care to use

i can see moving pictures in my mind
of  events that occurred when life was intact
but no emotions are attached

that wiring in my brain disintegrated
when that fracture emerged…   erupted…   exploded
whatever word you care to use

i had been naive
thought everything was as it should be
until it wasn’t

and now
i  am only the crack…   the crevice…   the abyss
whatever word you care to use

“Castle of  Glass”   Linkin Park

lyrics ~

Take me down to the river bend
Take me down to the fighting end
Wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again
Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova’s glow
And drop me down to the dream below
‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
Bring me home in a blinding dream,
Through the secrets that I have seen
Wash the sorrow from off my skin
And show me how to be whole again
‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything else I need to be
‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
For you to see

  1. But as long as there is a crack light CAN get in; and where there is light there is hope.
