The Most Fragile Thing

January 9, 2009
By Katy C., Asheville, NC

Like a rose wilting and dying
So feels my heart.
You stomped the most fragile
Thing in my body.
And you didn't even know it
I thought you felt the same as me.
You smiled, touched my arm, and stood up for me.
My spirits were lifted.
This was the first time anyone did this.
For a time, I felt beautiful.
Because you made me that way.
I never wanted to leave your side.
Afraid that I would lose you.
But then reality hit.
You never felt the same.
I had been floating on a fake cloud.
You trampled the most fragile thing in
My body and you didn't even know it.

I have been through that experience. It's good to get it out in writing. I never thought of writing it down. It's a good poem as well. I liked reading it and the title brought me in. Well done!
