How ironic that she who claims so many hearts
plays host to the most broken heart of all.
Try as she might to fill the void with conquests
notched on her lonely bedpost,
it would take a better man to
wade the depths of murky waters
and salvage a sinking star.
An exquisite china doll of pristine porcelain
conceals marks left by an owner’s clumsy hands, but
there’s only so much life can chip away
until there’s nothing left.
This glass ballerina is hurtling towards a fate
even the blindest eyes can see,
let us not stand idly by and watch her shatter.
