Favorite Quote:
"Everyone says love hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love. But in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes someone feel wonderful again." - unknown

I was clear like crystal,
All light diffused, none absorbed.
Surrounded by a frame
Of thick, polished wood
Attached by screws twisted in tight enough
To strip their threads.
I was frosted with icy crystals that,
When exposed to scorching heat,
Flowed down like tears.
Flung upon me were
The lost and confused -
Birds simply trying to alight on
A branch worthy to call home,
Leaving behind glistening trickles of blood
And shreds of feathers,
Clinging to me like mordant souvenirs.
I was a vivid reflection
Of tranquil blue skies
And flowers in bloom...
A window displaying
An unbreakable picture,
For steel bars concealed my panes.

The author's comments:
An entirely metaphorical poem describing me in my past.
