in great earnest

we stalked upon

our reflection

inside that small

spherical glass

to solder back

the filaments

of our fragility

and to rediscover

the finer elements

that once warm

and glow

our hearts

and to remain wishful

that it will in time

burn away

all the distortions

that mar our journey

and taint us

into helpless

  1. Very soft tone :), yet strong meaning and words. I think I know what you’re trying to say, and as long as we remember those filaments and allow them to supersede the distorted ones, we will burn what has been tainted and maintain our warm and glow hearts. I really like your poem 🙂 it’s very true of what happens to many people through this life.
