Glass by Shayma’a Ahmed

You think you’re tough, huh?

I can see right through you

You pretend not to care

Not to hurt

But in essence, 

You’re fragile.

You sport this facade of indifference

I can see it’s all pretense

Show emotion for once!

Cold

Hard

Deflecting any human warmth

Any passion

Someday

One day

Someone will come along

And shatter your fortress of glass

To let life in

Let love in

I can be that someone

And I promise to stay
