A reflecting heart, clear and glassy
Churning and enchanting
It is a shell that protects the living emotion
Desires to fears mix and mesh
Though sometimes dropped, it’s never been broken
It longs to rest in a velvet lined case
Sheltered from harm and looked on with grace
Guarded with honor built upon trust
If it were ice, would it melt?
Prized for its best, blossomed by fate
If it were diamond, would it sparkle?
It resonates a warming glow
Holds itself and can stand alone
Pure and elusive, this heart is my own
