silence of shameful sacrifice
that still seems familiar but can't
seem to register with these glassy eyes.
stacked china in glass cupboards
a fake kiss to porcelain lips
a rose with such poise that the
thorns seem almost fragile.
and so big my heart
with minds closing doors
or are those just words with untimely presence
that can't lull a fractured heart
or even mend
mistaken love.

such material limits can't guard a patient heart safely.
