For those that creep and wonder
why I live behind these glass walls
I give you my silent explanation
where in this life... I cannot voice

I fear not...
of those imperfect rocks
that are thrown toward my heart

It has already been broken!

I give you a paneled room
with a broad blue view

You read my soul and thoughts
on the obscure side of this screen

You might feel my footfalls
as I run from a stranger
into an elegant break down

I have come to know many
by their remarkable examples
of how they believe to disagree

These slippery conquests

Always and forever
there will be flight and collision

I dream of...

Aggressive people
and their spineless attempts

The cost of my vanity
and tomorrows deadline

A gentle receding sunset
and a twinkling star without sleep
an exposure of that door
to the other-side

How predictable:

The darkness
and it's flicker of light

My wings and the broken one

This addiction is pronounced
these days...

The glitter and it's audience
animate my fingers
and I gather pretty
little things

I am naked in this page
as I cannot be restricted
it suffocates my spirit

Angels tell me things
as does the ghosts of yesterday~

You have already seen:
me cry
and scream

My laughter
I reserve
for there is not plenty

For that certain somebody
I have smiled...and...~

I try to stay
within the lines
of my coloring book

Within this chapter:

I give you my word
I am just...
a flicker of hope

...Behind the glass
