The Girl with the Glass HeartHe pitied the girl with the glass heartThe Girl with the Glass Heart by XxXWiltingVioletXxX
for she was not made of stone like him.
He thought, “her poor, battered heart must be so broken
that its shards cut her from within.
She must wish she was not so fragile,
that she was unbreakable like me.”
Then one day she said to him,
“my love, how I wish you were free.
I pity you and your marble heart,
carved of the hardest stone,
So unmovable by anything—
you must be so alone.”
Shocked, he argued, “but you must feel such pain

I can probably be best described as a jack of all trades and a master of none, so I have many other interests and overly ambitious personal projects going on!
If you have any feedback on my work or advice for improvement, I'd really appreciate any comments!
