Glass Bottle

"A metaphorical bottle of life", is what I call myself.

My outer shell is smooth to the touch,

yet easy to crack or shatter.

People typically see through me and don't take me seriously.

I have a cork in my mouth keeping me from telling the truth.

I am who I am and I can't hide that,

each word that escapes your mouth cracks me a little more.

Im shattered by your lies and your ways of life,

but glass can be recycled right?

  • Comment from author about the poem: I am glass. We are all glass we need to keep each other from cracking. Even if we do crack there are always patches.

      I tend to think that we're all just vessels of some sort. I've found no name to accurately describes it yet, but your take on the matter is indeed interesting. Thanks for this.

        CSS, another great poem! And I agree completely with 'myself and me' that you are much better than glass, that you are a rare crystal, to be treasured!
