Gossamer & Glass

It’s finally Friday! This week has been so long for me; I'm excited to finally take a deep breath and relax for two days.

I believe this week’s poem is about falling in love with someone who isn't exactly who you thought they were, about finding the courage to fix a broken heart. It's a bit shorter than some of my more recent poems—but I hope you enjoy it! xx

Gossamer & Glass

such an easy thing it is,
to wrap one’s heart in wings
woven from gossamer dreams
so beautiful they might be mistaken
for fragile glass truths
to throw it to the shimmering stars
and leave it in the hands of destiny

and such a difficult thing it is,
to watch one’s heart come plummeting
when the hands of destiny seem to be busy
and the stars have no answer to desperate pleas
such a difficult thing it is,
to realise that gossamer wings
will only carry a heart so far,
and that when a glass truth shatters
it is a very difficult thing indeed
to fit all the pieces back together
and find it in oneself
to take a deep breath 
and throw it back to the stars once again.
