Glass




What you held was beautiful
it sparkled like a million glow worms
and you, you poor little fool
thought it was made of diamonds
when all along
it was little grains
of plundered sand
it fooled you
for it mirrored the sun
making your view
a kaleidoscope of rainbows.

And when it fell
it shattered
like the glass it always was
"but diamonds don't shatter", you cried
"diamonds are forever."
the horror
in your eyes was
mirrored in those thousand glowing pieces
a thousand tears spilled
a thousand words silenced
a thousand worlds teetered
a thousand deaths lived.
