Fragility

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Heart made of china

Can break under pressure

It smashes on impact

Gets crushed underfoot

Heart made of glass

Can be glued back together

But never will be

As strong as it should.

Skin made of paper

Is fragile and thin

In tears when you touch it

No barrier to pain

And when it is ruptured

It heals itself over

But always imperfect

The scars will remain.

Thanks, urgh just noticed a massive typo though. 'Thin' not 'thing'. Must stop posting late at night, its so easy to miss things.
