Once

Once

Once

 

Upon a time

we told

each other

the truth.

What was

that like?

Do you even

remember?

Once

when we were

together

always and

forever?

each other

the truth.

And now

Glass

Glass

Glass

 

How can something like glass be real?

Fragile yet deadly

the product of millions of grains of sand

and yet

entirely transparent.

Ethereal yet made of human hand,

quick to bite

that which created it.

 

Glass

reveals all

hides nothing

until threatened.

Put together it allows vision

reinforces natural light

helps us to see the truth

of life.

Yet shattered it spits

it scrapes and curls

its jagged lips across bare skin

like a monster’s smile.

 

Glass

commands respect

the ultimate dichotomy

of beauty and beast

Don’t cross it.
