SLIVER OF GLASS

YOU BEGAN TO SEARCH FOR THAT SPECIAL ONE

THE ONE WHO COMPLETES YOU AND MAKES YOU WHOLE.

SOMEONE BY YOUR SIDE THRU GOOD TIMES AN BAD,SHARING JOURNEYS OF TALES UNTOLD.

THEN ONE DAY THEY COME TO YOU, WHY OR HOW YOU DONT KNOW.

ALL YOU KNOW IS THEY ARE THERE AND YOU DONT WANT THEM TO GO.

YOU LOOK FOR WAYS TO GET CLOSER, WAYS TO MAKE THEM STAY.

YOUR HEART FEELS EMPTY AND ACHES FOR THEM WHEN THEY TURN

TO WALK AWAY.

AS DAYS GO BYE, YOU CANT WAIT TO HEAR THEIR VOICE OR SEE

THE SMILE UPON THEIR FACE, TO HOLD A HAND. YOU WANT TO KISS THEIR LIPS

OR FEEL SECURE INSIDE A LOVING WARM EMBRACE.

HEARTS BEGIN TO BEAT AS ONE. YOU SHARE EACH OTHERS THOUGHTS AN

FEELINGS. YOU SENSE THE PASSION AND DESIRES BECOME

MORE AN MORE INTENSE.

YOU THINK YOU HAVE IT ALL WORKED OUT. ITS GOING ALONG JUST FINE

DAYS, WEEKS, EVEN YEARS. THIS IS YOUR WORLD, YOUR LIFE NOTHING

ELSE EVER CROSSED YOUR MIND.

AS TIME GOES ON, YOU HAVE YOUR UPS AN DOWNS SMILES, LAUGHS

AN YES, TEARS AN FROWNS. THE SECURITY YOUR USE TO AND THE

LIFE YOU'VE COME TO KNOW IS SLOWLY BECOMING UNGLUED AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU DONT KNOW WHICH PATH YOU NEED TO GO.

YOU LOOK AT THE MIRROR ONE DAY AND ITS CRACKING AN

FALLING APART. WHAT YOU WANT AN WHAT YOU HAVE IS ALL CRUSHING

YOUR HEART!

TIGHTER AN TIGHTER THE PAIN BECOMES CRUSHING INSIDE YOUR

SOUL. THEN ALL AT ONCE, LIKE A SLAP TO THE FACE, ITS ALL

BROKEN , SHATTERD INTO A MILLION PIECES ALL UPON

THE FLOOR OF YOUR CHEST! YOU ARE STUNNED , SCARED ,DO YOU

DARE MOVE FOR FEAR OF BEIN CUT?

YOU STRUGGLE BECAUSE YOU CANT BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED.

WHERE DID IT ALL GO WRONG? ONE DAY YOUR WITH YOUR LOVE

THEN NEXT DAY THEY ARE GONE.

YOU WANT TO HIDE, TO RUN. YOU DONT CARE ANYMORE.

NO SUN, NO SOUND ALL YOU HEAR IS THE SLAMMIN OF THE DOOR.

YOU MORN AND CRY AS YOU SLOWLY TRY TO MOVE ON. YOU SEE

ALL THE GLASS INSIDE YOUR SOUL THAT HAS TO BE REMOVED.

IT HAS TO FORGOTTEN, REPLACED BECAUSE SHATTERED IT IS OF NO USE.

AS THE DAYS GO BYE TEARS STILL FLOW FROM YOUR EYES. THE

THINGS YOU USE TO DO, SONGS YOU EVEN LISTENED TO ALL COME

FALLIN BACK DOWN. YOU TRY TO STEP OVER THE MEMORIES

PUSHIN THEM ASIDE. REPLACING THE MIRROR ON YOUR HEART

SO OTHERS CAN SEE WHO YOU REALLY ARE. YOU WANT THE TO SEE

WHAT MAKES YOU LIVE , LOVE , AN CRY TO ACCEPT YOU

FOR YOU. YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DESERVE YOU BUT THERES STILL AN ACHE THERE

INSIDE YOUR HEART YOU JUST CANT SEEM SHAKE.

NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY, WHAT YOU DO , NOT A DIFFERENCE

DOES IT MAKE.

SO, YOU HAVE TO DECIDE TO LOOK INSIDE, TO SEE WHATS CAUSING PAIN.

WHATS GOIN ON? WHAT CAN BE WRONG? NOT A SINGLE STEP FORWARD CAN YOU

GAIN. YOU SIT DOWN AN SEARCH YOUR SOUL LOOKING DEEP INSIDE

YOUR HEART. THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU SEE IT, VERY SLIGHT, AS YOUR HEART

BEGINS TO BEAT REAL FAST A SLIVER OF GLASS.

THOUGH VERY SMALL. ITS FULL OF PAIN FESTERIN MORE AN MORE

THE LONGER IT REMAINS.

THE MEMORY , THE SCENT, THE FEELING WHATEVER THE SLIVER IS,

YOU HAVE TO REMOVE IT VERY DELICATELY BUT COMPLETLY

OR THE PAIN WILL ONLY GROW.

YOU KNOW IT WILL BE HARD, A VERY PAINFUL TASK. IT HAS

TO BE GONE COMPLETELY , NOT BROKEN OFF INSIDE, NOTHING

CAN BE LEFT. ONLY THEN. WILL YOU KNOW

YOU WILL BE FREE TO LOVE AGAIN AND TO SHINE THE MIRROR

TO YOUR HEART. FREE TO ALLOW THAT ONE TRUE REFLECTION

THATS MEANT FOR YOU NEVER TO BE APART.
