Fractured fairy tails

I fracture
that's just what I do
and I'm willing to bet 
that you crackle a bit too
or three 
or four times
before we all eventually 
Shatter
or break apart
or not

because mostly we just wrap it up and play hurt
Thing is.....
how do we know which number we're on?

and the fractured fairy tails
when they tell our stories..... when we tell our stories

when they....you know
come together to make us whole
mend a hole or at least
give us a semi solid memory
that let us live our lives now
creating a brief respite from the past
a fairy tail past
