Kintsugi (Drabble)


Kintsugi
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 13/11/2018
Even entering the museum of our life together, I am drawn by the memory of each gift, each apology that once mended a fight or misunderstanding and made us stronger.
I sit in the tall-backed armchair, so old and well-used the leather had scuffed and cracked in the place he had always sat in that room. The chair was the one thing he never gave to me or allowed me to use. From there I could see our broken life.
Kintsugi: the Japanese art of mending cracked pots with gold.
There is no gold left to mend this last break.
