Broken Glass

Updated on March 17, 2011

She exposed her emotions, stripped away all the pretenses

Laid bare her soul, freed a spirit, that was locked away hidden

Her fragile emotions, raw, jagged pieces slashed at her innocence

Faith and belief in the love of a man left her jaded afraid to open

Her heart to another

She gazed into a mirror cracked, starring back at her

From the other side a disfigured reflection

Distorted and out of focus, nothing could hide the sadness in her eyes

With a finger tip she traced the outline of her face between the cracked

Pieces of glass as a tear trickled down softly wetting her left cheek

With an impatient sigh she swiped it away, straightened her back and turned

Away from the broken glass

      I very much find myself enamored with your symbolism.

      Sad, and expressed with so much imaginations. I can feel the heaviness in her heart...

      Cheers!
