Fall Into Gray

Fall Into Gray

A Poem by Tania Leigh

 

My heart is made of ruby red glass and adorned by sapphire scars. I keep it safely locked in its crystal case upon a pedestal of cascading colours; it is the only brilliance within a vast gray sea of emotions…

 

Then along comes your love; a tiny steel hammer, forged of hurt and anger and swung by pride as I watch helplessly…

 

I am ruefully in awe of the irony in the beautiful tinkling sound that I

hear when the crystal case is conquered and tiny shards of ruby red glass

explode ...and fall into gray.

Absolutely beautiful, I loved the imagery of the case being broken.
It is easy to fall into cliche went writing about broken hearts, you didn't which is commendable in itself.

This is an amazing piece of writing...

I also have a poem that I have written under the same idea that "The people that can hurt you the most are the ones that you love and let in to your heart". I don't know for sure if that is the meaning behind your poem, but that is what I got out of it.

I really like the use of imagery... Ruby Red, Cascading colours, sea of emotions... Very well done.
