Shattered Glass

Every reflection
Is distorted in the glass;
A mirror to my fate.
Waiting for the time to pass.

But if each shard contains the whole,
Why does this all feel so hollow?
Close my eyes so I can’t see,
I’m walking on broken glass indefinitely.

Every face feels so far away;
Starry eyes become transmogrified.
Don’t say goodbye, but keep me at bay.
Zone out to white noise; tough-talking boys.

Shard by shard, I walk through shattered doors.
I’ve got my guard up so I won’t get cut.
Solve et coagula, suffering does not go unignored.
Set my sights on who I can trust in due time.

Dichotomy and alchemy never appealed to me until now,
These days it’s all I think about.
It’s the way of the world; distorted glass.
And now I’m desperate to pick up the pieces of the past.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
