(For Haley)

"Heart of Glass"

I heard it break on the tips of words harder than a wooden floor,
I heard it shatter in the sound of silence as she stood before me.
I looked closer only to find that I could see right through it, and there was nothing at that moment.
She had a heart of glass, perfectly polished and beautiful, with plenty of room for another one to match.
And although it was broken, I know soon enough it will come back together.
Maybe she doesn't have a heart of glass at all.
Maybe, she has a heart of steel,
One could only hope so.
