The shell that keeps my hope alive
Seems of late eager to dive;
Leaving me with less and less,
Though I try to keep it at its best.
 
This symbol I hold so close to heart,
That which seemed so bright, upstart;
With each fragment it comes to tell
A truth which deep down bodes unwell.
 
I keep the faith with superglue
Because I’m bare and naked without you;
But still I fear for the day to come
When the breakage can not be undone.

And you know it's quite funny, how true it was too XD
I'm in different ways now, and happier. I finally found that old shell again and let it go in a river the other day. It was a nice way to let the past move on.

I know this feeling all to well, and super glue without a doubt is mandatory! :)
