I watch as my glass palace

Vanishes, fades, taken away

Into the vacuum and voidness.

I pick up a shattered piece

Of the crystal chandelier.

I see myself back that day -

Forging the artwork

Piecing everything together

My smile

My tears

My sweat

My pain

My love

Now everything’s slipping away

From my tight grip.

 

Tears roll down my cheek

Of yearning and longing

But not regret.

I built the castle from nothing

I made everything

I lived everything

I cherished everything back when

They were still existent.

 

I opened my palm

The last bit of glass gone

Everything’s gone

But I didn’t lose anything.

The palace of glass still stands.

In my heart.

Unshaken.

Unmoved.

Untouched.

And beautiful

As always.
