See Me

For Poppy's Prompts #4

I am made of glass.


Noticeable only when unclean.

Everything I am is brittle,

Brittle bones,

Brittle feelings,

Brittle soul.

Breathe on me and I may crack,

Touch me and I may fracture.

My existence is precarious.


What I would give

For any human contact.


My sharp edges undeniable,

Unable to be ignored,

Your scars a constant reminder

Of my fragile existence.

    So powerfully written. This line is genius: "Noticeable only when unclean." I appreciate the raw nature of this writing. Lyrical without unnecessary sentimentality. Just lovely!

    Ahhhh, this is incredible!! The whole premise and the way you carried it out!! I was instantly captivated and it pulled on my heartstrings so much! The metaphor fit with the sorrow so perfectly. 'Breathe on me and I may crack, Touch me and I may fracture. My existence is precarious.' This was so heartwrenching but so well written and powerful. And that ending, gosh you did this so inexplicably well!
