SHATTERED GLASS...














Green-eyed darkness swallows my thirsty sight
Walls in vain I beseech… for an escape site
Solemn prayers I murmur… answered by echoes of light
My glass… smiles with hope…dressed in rays so bright
In relief I soar… as a desert kite
Free at last… free at last… from gloom’s fury  bite
But now… my glass is shattered…I ‘m  a homeless mite!

Untamed lightening winks…its sharp voice astounds
My glass… parries all fears…gobbling deafening sounds
A murderous spider crawls … away from soaked mounds
My glass… oils its path……destination reversed to grounds!
Glutton vampire …on my trails…with pangs of bloodhounds
My glass… blocks all my scents…external stiffing never counts
But now… my glass… is shattered…I ‘m trapped where risk abounds!

A great paradox…my eyes see not my face!
My mirror… how loyal...defines me with grace…
Forward sings my vision…undressing contents of lace!
My glass… back-spies…keen on dangers to trace
A tired foot curses… in pain…too tortured to keep pace
My glass… magnifies my strength…keeping me in the race
But now… my glass… is shattered…I’m drowning in mucky disgrace!

Hmmm...our lives are full of "glasses".....which often get shattered......leaving us in tatters!
