Shatter, O Beautiful One - Poem by Harley Halford

Those eyes, green and depthless, they have a tale to tell. All bout the pain no one else knows she feels. All about how she's loved and lost those who's feelings she thought were real.

Her smile is strained and fake, she struggles to keep it on her face.She takes in the pain, breaths it in like air. Her heart is cracked and broken, she tries to hide it, but you can see it on her face, o so fair.

Her heart can't take it anymore, her eyes fill with tears and they fall like soldiers. She grabs her chest and screams out. Her heart, once beautiful, is now torn and disfigured. The edges wither and her heart beat slows, it shatters under the pressure.

So shatter, O beautiful one, for all has been taken away, all is lost.
