Poem by Alexia

Just like glass is the heart,
Both are hard, rigid, and cold,
Each has it’s weakest part,
They play it safe and are not bold.
Just like glass is the heart,
They are made of what we use to fill,
When the sewn pieces come to part,
Everything overflows and spills,
Just like glass is the heart,
It cannot simply neatly split,
Easily it is broken into parts,
It shatters into tiny, irreconcilable bits,
Just like glass is the heart,
Molded to conform to many visions,
A delicate creation of intricate art,
Yet it makes so many vital decisions,
Just like glass is the heart,
Constantly shifting it’s brilliant luster,
It acts as an emotional cart,
It makes us smile, or fluster,
Just like glass is the heart.
Just like glass is my heart.
