￼ In neon highlights A singular beauty found More than just a glass
World of polished shine These glorious reflections Sparkling always
Glass hearts lay exposed, Revealed to all, Pulsing in translucence, Beating like glaciers on the move. One must treat a glass heart with delicacy, Treat it with care, For a glass heart will crack And what’s worse, You’ll hear it coming.
In a cloak of snow Winter set upon the world Our love, set like glass Reflective yet impassioned Just twinned souls frozen in time
I do not wish to grip, but glide I do not want to slip, but slide I do not wish for ice, but glass And do so wish that it won’t pass
Shattered, Shifting, Broken days, Glass in motion Frosted view. Crystal whispers, Promises, Enticements, But bleeding feet Walk slowly. Diamond cut, Relentless Strife, Melt me down, Make me right. Please!
Feet… Shimmying Legs… Wobbling Frame… Quivering Eyes… Doubting Hat… Escaping Floor… Glasslike!
Shattered hearts In glass collide Across an ocean Far and wide Crystal feelings Cut and gone As love’s a game We all play wrong Distance captured Mirrored hue In panes of pain I think of you Someday, somehow I’ll gaze and see Not me in glass But face of thee (Image courtesy of Wen-M on deviantart.com)
Fragmented memories Better than none Shattered like glass Reflect in the sun Land in a heap Piled up like snow Realisation There’s a long way to go But even in repose The shards catch the light And offer the promise That maybe I might So twinkle and shine Until I’m made dull That is my promise Until I am null (Image courtesy of DanteRM on deviantart.com)
