Glass shoes

by tainted melody   Jun 26, 2010

Where do you want me to go,
because my steps you criticize.

I step hesitantly,
awaiting the explosions to come.

Walking through this minefield,
trying so hard not to set it off.

Walking on these glass shoes,
waiting for them to break.

You can make me so happy,
or make me cry through the night.

You says these supporting words,
yet you turn on a dime.

Like a beautiful chandelier,
hanging only by a thin string.

like the lighting strike, silent,
waiting for the frightening thunder.

So here I stand walking slowly on these glass shoes,
waiting for me to break.

    I definitly enjoyed reading this one alot. The feeling of treading lightly and waiting for the storm to hit is very much prescent and it makes the reader feel like something is going to happen. I really, really enjoyed it and I'll be keeping a look out for more of your poetry.
