"crumbs of memories"

white fluff rises | silent promise unfurls | humble grains and water's touch
leavens bread so virginal | crust crackles | whispers of comfort
through laughter shared | secrets told
sudden sharp crust stings | redness pool | the tip of my finger
my tongue taste | metal twang of betrayal | echo of silence
where trust once embraced | crumbs of memories | now burnt remains
humility hardens | inedible mound | amidst the pain | a lesson learned
find the strength | rise higher still | forgive one day | though never forget
and build new bonds | wherever God leads | new breads can still be true
but check for razor edges!
