The Glass

A Poem by The Fallen

First thing posted on here in a while..


The Glass

No matter where I see it,

I'm determined to shatter it to bits.

It's something I despise,

Their voices leaking with lies

It's an ungodly look,

The pain beneath her eyes,

She's been mistaken,

For someone who rarely cries.

As soon as my fist makes impact,

I realize it's confidence,

I seem to lack.

The time of day seems to collide,

And I can't seem to tell the truth from the lies.

I feel as if I am shattering my own soul,

That stares back at me through the glass.

amazingly written!
I see so much potential in your writing!
my favorite part was, "It's an ungodly look,
The pain beneath her eyes,
She's been mistaken,
For someone who rarely cries."
Thanks for your amazing poetry!
can you by chance look at my Story The Blonde girl? that would be great.
Keep up the amazing work!

Beautiful...what it reminds me of is deep thought.

Good ideas and the way they have been eloped together is very well done.
But the layout if you read it aloud doesn't work as well as it could, and i really like this.

"As soon as my fist makes impact,

I realize it's confidence,

I seem to lack."

The rest of it goes together perfectly, just this part is played out differently to the others and it made me fall over my words a little bit.

Love the last stanza, and the second last. You must have started getting into it more and more as you wrote and eventually just flowed out. Confidence is something a lot of people battle with (from my experience especially writers), not so much in expression but in character and overall posture. Anyway I'll stop rambling, thanks for the read!

"Its an ungodly look,/ the pain beneath her eyes" I really love that line. it makes me think, that god's children shouldn't cry, they should be happy. I really love that Its beautiful! Thank you for writing.

Interesting poem. I liked it. Lies fogging the air to where you can't see. Good concept. Great work

nicely worded.. I feel similar emotions whence catching my image, mocking me through distorted reflection .. good stuff.

Raw and uninhibited. Respect for a well written poem with a rant that packs a punch.

I'm glad you're back for now! I'm sure that Twin Blades will be spectacular, considering how long its taken. This is a great poem. I feel like everyone is looking into their own glass...trying to find themselves amongst all the pain... It can be a very twisted process.
