Cracked teapot

The cracked teapot leaks
as I pour warmth into our cups
heavy drops fall to the floor

My voice cracks as I
pour my words to you
Flaws cupped gently
in offered open hands
But desperate vulnerability
leaves a stain

You drop your eyes
but not your defences
The carpet is
more absorbent
of my tears
