Locked Inside: A Poem

Locked inside
Glass castles,
Room to room
Always Seen,
Completely unknown. 

Shatters reality
Coating the heart
In glass,
Shielding pain.

But every shatter brings
The cutting pain,
Every whisper stare
A prisoner to protection.

The false shelter
Of glass,
A reflection of what is
Blocking what could

Grief can be seen,
The experience impossible to hide,
Inside the glass rattles,
Let love

The unknown is meant
To be known,
Pain tries to avoid,
But glass reflections canโ€™t hide
The need for love.
