Broken Glass

Broken Glass

A Poem by MandaBear

just something that came to me. Hope you like it :)

Cuts and scratches hurts more with broken glass.
Our love used to be fragile yet seemed unbreakable.
You broke that love like a rock hitting the windshield.
Tossed it away and for what?.... Her?
Lying, cheating, and falling to your knees, 
You expect me to take you back after your mistake.
Act like nothing ever happened,
Be just like it was before.
No, I refuse to be the glass you shatter.
I refuse to be the windshield you brake.
You can take your feelings and shove it.
Your tenderness means nothing.
Cuts and scratches hurt more than broken glass.
Love used to be ours but not anymore.
You are the broken glass now.
Don't come crying to me when you smash.
This is for all the times you tried to hide.
All the times you smiled and kissed me with such a lie on your face.
For the hopes and dreams hitting the bottom barely hanging on.
Now, I am stronger than any broken glass.
Hope your next relationship doesn't crack under pressure.......

Amazing and this has to be my favorite of yours! I definitely know how this feels. How a guy hurts you then moves with another girl so easily. Next thing you know you're back on your feet and he comes crawling back. Sometimes for me it's hard to say no, but then I think back to how depressed he made me feel.

"No I refuse to be the glass you shatter
I refuse to be the windshield you break" are my favorite lines since that's how I feel everytime a guy comes crawling back for me. Again, nice job :)
P.s.-- added to my library. XD

Amazing, great pathos, metrica and everything i can possibily think of, just do me a favour, please !
Delete that "crash ... crash ... crash ..." that's poetry not a screenplay, this is a kind of writing belonging to another genre

"Hope your next relationship doesn't crack under pressure......."

this struck me as a VERY witty and clever pun!

This was sooooo good!

I could feel your feelings genuinely and truly, and that always make for a good poem. But you channeled all those emotions and weaved them into a great piece of poetry and I'm really glad you did. Though, I am sorry you had to deal with such a jerk.

cuts and scratches really hurt more than broken glass. this is reality..

I like the use of glass to make your point in the poem. Some mistakes can't be forgiven. I like the description of his action and the gift of wisdom for him in the ending. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

I can really relate to this as I was in a relationship where this happened. Your poem is very inspiring and I love the repetitiveness of the 'crash, crash, crash' - the way you presented it helps to make it all that more effective. Thank you for sharing :)
