Such a beautiful poem, it resonates with me. The heart of glass is a beautiful comparison. Matching this with And So it Goes, the music is so soothing and I feel it matches so well. Loving this! :D

This is so sad and brutally true. I like how you add billy Joel song which sets the tone of the voice. A lot of poems have similes but you put more metaphors which I think is tougher. However, you did it with ease and the comparison you did really hit home. My own heart is made of glass, I’m actually really cautious to open my heart, I’m actually a tender person but I have so much sharpness by caution. Nicely done, by the way have you ever listened to Christina Perri jar of hearts. I find this song suits it too you might like it. My fav billy Joel song is uptown girl.

Thank you for reading and commenting! I love many of Christina Perri's songs, my favorite of them being 'Arms.' :) I hope you and more people can find someone to open up their hearts to and be tight friends with.
