The Shattered Within

It lies beautifully upon the ceramic holder
Then stands seductively upon the shelf
Just like a folder, full of lies upon the counter
This beautiful glass tumbler proudly stands by itself

The lady outlining an hourglass 
Is no different than the glass tumbler
They are two halves that make a whole
With her long silhouette of a gown
Gliding intricately across the floor

See the tumbler stand clear as crystal
Bringing night vision to day
In utter display of beauty
A sip from which you would think 
All thirst would give way

The taste of hers in retrospect
Remains on the surface of my lips
The touch of her delicate fingers
Passionately lingers over my skin

A look away to attend to chores
A simple brisk movement in force
A sudden uneven sway of course
Brings the beautiful glass tumbling with force

Just like the alluring lady could not be loved
For she embodied oxidised metal
Her rustiness would cut superficially deep
Yielding surrender for life could not in creep

The floor once so clean now holds
A mess of broken pieces in shoes

She was a perfect combination of pain and sorrow
A good girl who could be bad today or tomorrow
For only she knew the balance to follow

-A collaboration with PePa.

Thank you for reading.

    You are destined for greatness, keep doing you, your poetry is out of this world. – Cezane
