Here Stands the Glass

by Twisted Heart   Jul 22, 2009


When pain has tipped the heart of glass
And time finds no relief
So many things may come to pass
Stay true inside the grief
Where turns the clock that spins the soul
If trouble comes along
To chill the hurt and find the hole
Inside the heart done wrong

Somewhere beneath the moonlit glow
A burden's left to bear
Against the winds of winter's snow
A heart's caught unaware
Deep in the mind a turmoil comes
To shatter life it seems
Leaves the wounded heart unstrung
Among the broken dreams

Upon the shards of glass are tears
That time may try to heal
Inside the mind are wasted years
The soul tries hard to feel
But come the day that pain is eased
With hope the heart is caste
No strings to twine the pain apeased
'Til then...
Here stands the glass

    "When pain has tipped the heart of glass
    And time finds no relief

    A excellent opening, I like how you just are positive and give off a sense of hope here. I found this whole concept brilliant and well-penned.

    "Where turns the clock that spins the soul"

    The wording here is fantastic and simply pulls the reader more in to your words.

    "If trouble comes along
    To chill the hurt and find the hole
    Inside the heart done wrong"

    Great work so far, this is just stunning!

    "Somewhere beneath the moonlit glow
    A burden's left to bear
    Against the winds of winter's snow
    A heart's caught unaware"

    Your descriptions hold my attention and you express all the pain and emotion so well.

    "Deep in the mind a turmoil comes
    To shatter life it seems
    Leaves the wounded heart unstrung
    Among the broken dreams"

    Wonderful word usage like "unstrung" was very unique and fit well, and so did "turmoil".
    This is a powerful write, keep it up!
