I came up with this poem one day at the local fair. I had gone with close friends, and I soon wandered off on my own.  I sat on a bench holding a glass fish bowl I had recently won when one of my guys friends surprised me from behind making me drop the bowl. As it shattered I swung around to face him when he automatically said, "At least it wasn't your heart."

There once was a girl

With a piece of glass for a heart

And that is the reason she never showed it

Along came a boy

Handsome and smart

And with one glance he instantly stole it

The girl panicked

She realized what he had done

Though she wasn’t really sure of what he did

At first she thought "this isn’t so bad"

But soon those thought began to rid

Day by day and night by night

She noticed she couldn’t stop

More and more thoughts filled her head

Till it felt like her head would soon pop

One day she found that boy again

And begged him "please give it back"

He returned the crystal, this jewel of mine

And walked silently away

But even after all that

Things didn’t feel right

So she told him " take it"

The boy smiled in a mischievous way

And said not one word

He took her heart and with one touch

. . . . it instantly broke
