Poetry by Tejay Joe: Glass heart

Posted on Posted in Hot Buzz

I put it up on the surface

For one to see

But all could see the beauty in me

 

Like a windscreen it was my layer of protection

Like a pair of glasses I used it to see the world

In three dimensions

 

Oh what detail I saw

Sheep without their disguise

And wolves with souls

It saw nothing but possibility

And things encased in gold

 

Dear heart

You glimmer in light as diamonds

But I forgot your value

And wore you as sleeve

Then came the thieves

 

Without an inscription of fragility

I attracted reality

Those who saw but couldn’t handle with care

Those who took advantage of innocence so crystal clear

 

Whilst I became life’s zombie

I walked the planet scorched for eternity

Bruising the ones who tried to fix me

Killing the ones who tried to use me

 

Alas! I came to the edge of my world

Set to fall off in the abyss

Odd cause that’s where I met a zombie like me

That couldn’t feel pain from my hurt and rivalry

 

It built me another, one filed with wonder

A blood stained glass heart

With a smile he disappeared

Into the abyss of the one we feared

 

Not without leaving me all his blood

Now that heart beats to his tone

To remind me I’ll NEVER EVER WALK ALONE
