A Weekend Micro Poem

Like I am;
  with empty parts

Make it better is the cry I hear
Always ever people want to fix
You alone can fill my empty parts

I'm not real perfect in many ways
Looks flawed  browned bruised scratched and missing parts

Listen, my words scratchy voice.  Feel, bumps
over my body them you don't see

Use a Cane, spas pills cream do no good
Ugly mess, you love me like I am
There's no fixing me My hurts you soothe

 - I'm linked with Kerry O'Connor in the Imaginary Garden at
 - One of Kerry's request was to write a poem using the phrase, with empty parts.  She also asked for no more than ten lines.  I have ten lines and 75 words plus six in the title.
 - I have some of the above situations but not all.  I do have the cane, I am hoping that this impediment to my getting around will only be temporary.  Seems I lose my crutches quite easily, so far I've lost one.

I'm hobbling in your footsteps, Jim! On Monday, my daughter and her husband took me to see the progress on their new home and I tripped over the step into the back garden, and it's not the fist time I've fallen over. I'm thinking of getting a stick. I've seen a lovely black one decorated with painted flowers.

I like your honest approach to the theme, Jim.

Oh, I am there too..sometimes with a cane. Yes, this is an honest response to the prompt.
