Broken Glass

Somewhere in the world a young girl sits with her headphones in and music blaring strikingly loud Listen delicately and you'll hear the pain in the words from a writer who is proud to share their work to an entire crowd
A writer who's
Words are so well spoken...
They give you the blues
She feels so broken
From glass which has shattered
And left her with cuts and bruises
Everyone she loves she loses
So much so that all she can do is
Sit there and do what she always does
She abuses herself
Now a boy comes by with a bright smile
And a brand new toon and he says
The words she's always needed to hear
He says it without any sort of fear
Because he has no fear
He says it so clear
It brings a tear to his own eye
Hello there, my dear,
What'r ya listen' to?
Come on, don't be shy
The girl looks up with her shattered eyes
And broken heart and says what she has trained herself to,
ВЂњNothing new”.
He takes off his hood
And he spoke as he stood
Just as any strong person would
Nothing that's good
Nothing that will help you in the way everything should.
Let me save you
I could help you get through
The pain that you're going through
Let me help you see the world in a new hue
Do you know who
Who what?
Who you are.
Strive to be the best version of you
Try to be entirely true
True to... ?
True to yourself
Make is so they rue the day they ever tried to
Stop you or hurt you
But, that's what they do... what's the point?
Because darling that's how you do it
You show them the day where
Despite all the broken glass
And sass
You flew
Don't do this
It won't help you through
Fight like the warrior I know you can be
Be free
Despite the cuts on your face
And the glass stuck to your knee
Free like the waves at sea
Free like the wind that creates those waves
And flies for miles and brings new smiles
And entwines itself perfectly into the branches of the old oak tree
The same wind that helps the leaves fall from that tree
Helps the leaves be free
And the tree is lifted from its year-long burden
Like wind, help liberate everyone and every thing
And be what they're supposed to be
The wind that blows unrelentingly
And apologetically
With continuous glee
Show them that you are the key
Because we're all the key
To someone's locked door
Because everyone keeps something hidden
Inside their house or their room or a glass box
Everyone has something that they lock away
And houses have windows
People like to break windows
Like they break your spirit
Don't let them
Some might throw rocks in at the windows
To create more shattered glass and sad eyes
Because windows are the houses eyes
Some might sneak their way in
When you forget to close the window you left open
Because you wanted to feel the wind on your skin
But they aren't welcomed so break-ins don't count
Be the person who stops those break ins
Remember, you are a house and though your windows may be broken
You're still standing strong
Your bones are keeping you upright
And your foundation--your faith-- it remains
And take in all of your own glory
Because darling you are glorious
Honestly miss,
Its ludicrous
How gorgeous you are
And how you don't see it
How don't you see it?
It's really a pity
That you're so pretty
Especially with those shattered eyes
Eyes that have seen so many lies
Eyes that just want to hide
Please don't hide from me.
You don't see that you're
New York City
You never sleep
There's never a moment where you don't make a peep
Some think you're a bit of a creep (you're not)
But in the end you make everyone feel welcomed
But you yourself don't feel welcomed
Why don't you feel welcomed
Who told you that your body was a toy or a tool
They were a fool
No, they weren't cool
Darling, show them you rule
You wish your body was clay
That way you could shape yourself into whatever they want to
You could do whatever they say
But darling I pray
That someday
You'll show everyone just how much
You slay
Slay, girl. You're a fighter.
The girl smiles in a new, healed sort of way
In a way you can't help but to hope will always stay
Kind of like how you hope the new puppy doesn't stray
Although sometimes it does
On occasion, puppies run away
But, hey, that's okay
Because you have to have the courage to run after it
And search it out
Sometimes it's hard
But you can't pout
Happiness is worth it
Never underestimate the power of positivity
But also never underestimate the power of negativity
Both can consume you
If you let it
And never, don't you ever, underestimate the things you say
They count they matter and hey
Often, they can save the day
Go save someone's day.

Step Into The Looking Glass

Divine Minds Transcend

There is so much more than what we see
What we fear and choose to perceive
What we're told we must believe
A place that's hard to conceive
A portal to a world beyond belief
Since birth it waits for you and me
A world beyond a lucid dream
I can tell you where this portal leads
It leads to a cure for humanity
So step onto the magic train
And learn to accept your certain death
For life is nothing more
Then fabricated reality

Fate, it seems
Is not without a sense of irony*

I finally broke free of the evil me
It wasn't church that set me free
It wasn't drugs from psychiatry
It wasn't money that made me see
I had to die from this reality
And accept my certain death

It's your turn to consider the facts
Now breathe a bit and try to relax
Just one second as I remove the mask
Then a crack like a whip and a panic attack
No slack as you slip into a static bath
Your vertebrae is split and severed in half
You blast away and never look back
The math adds up so you have to adapt
Half of you is lost and your soul is cracked
The other half swirls in the endless black
As you float down an uncharted path
You finally break through at last

All you thought you knew from life
Is shattered
As you step into the looking glass

glass,  step.

Broken Hour Glass

My reflection is here
But my thoughts
Are dissipating...

Like an hourglass broken
My conceptions
Are dust...

And yet I still try to
Every grain that fell...

broken,  glass,  hour.

Broken glass, crushed on my forehead

Oh love
Don't let the light
Blind you

I would do
To keep the
Corners of your
Lips turned
Tenderly up

I would do
To pull the
Thick ringing from
The deep of
My eardrums to
Hear you speak
Sharp swift clear
Like a river, a blade

I will do
To wreathe your
Scent across my
Shoulders, to
Loop it about
My sleeping wrists

broken,  crushed,  forehead,  glass.

The Glass of Truth

I mean, you look at yourself
What do you see?
I'm studying the carcass in front of me
Who had died last year
It's eyes were black sockets where they used to shine bright
For the light had left them long ago

A shrunken, loose leather hung from the bones
The brain bled
The heart ripped
A permanent smile
The fingers curled at the end
That's what stood across in the mirror, the truth

This room filled with the aroma of death
And anger, sadness, and fear
I can't help but wonder if the reflection was what my future was supposed to be
Or that is how I truly looked on the inside

What about you?
What do you see?

glass,  truth.

I Am Glass

I am glass,
Sharp edged and dirty,
Offering reflections
Or even visions.
I am glass,
Inanimate and still,
Giving scars and taking scratches.
I am glass,
Fragile and careful,
Put only where it's safe.
I am glass,
Receiving buffers and renewals,
Shining brightly and glistening
In a new sun.
But not too brightly,
Sometimes reflecting no light at all.
Because your fingerprints are always
Embedded in my surface.
I am glass.

Broken Glass pt 2

Have you ever walked on
Broken glass before?
I'm sure most of you
Would say no, but
Do you really think
You haven't?
Have you ever gotten
Out of bed with your
Broken heart so heavy
It feels like its hanging out of
Your chest?
Have you ever walked
Around in public smiling
Even though you know
Your funeral was the day prior?
Have you ever drove
Through the place you guys
Used to love the most and
All you can see is ghosts?
This is walking on
Broken glass.

A plane of glass

The water is still as I gaze upon it, the sunshine reflecting in my eyes and I feel like I'm blinded, it's a reflection so bright that I cannot see... nor do I want to. Reality shifts, and I can feel the intensity of every moment, and I twitch... shaking towards my own destiny, as I wallow and suffocate in my own fear, my flashy insecurities... I can't believe you see me, may I run? Not that I want to, I'd rather drown... either way it could be fun, do you not agree? Someone once told me they loved me, proceeding anyhow within my doubt, thus how I skeptically do not agree, with all that's perpetually mistaken for dull sound... I love you... and I say those words without a hidden meaning, it's only truth that I am speaking, you wrecked my world in such a good and terrible way, that I must be honest... whatever part you cast me in, I'll gladly be the one who plays.

glass,  plane.
