glass wall
topop

when i found out you had built a glass wall
 1
i was heart broken
 2
because i didn't see it for a while
 3
until i bumped into it.
 4
 
 
i thought we could still hear each other,
 5
thought we could feel what's going on with our eyes closed,
 6
but i guess sound doesn't travel well through glass,
 7
not that glass anyways.
 8
 
 
i looked everywhere for a door,
 9
pushed and pried on every inch,
 10
but i never opened it,
 11
if anything i left a smudge.
 12
(if only windex would solve this)
 13
 
 
i solidly pressed my hand against the cold glass,
 14
desperate for it to melt away at my command,
 15
but you stood in solitude,
 16
ignoring my agony, pretending to care.
 17
 
 
so desperate, i walked away,
 18
not knowing where i might go,
 19
and turning to see you one last time,
 20
i noticed i was too far away
 21
to see my reflection in the glass:
 22
you.
