pain of glass

Pain of glass

her essence is revealed
as her mystery unfolds
in the flame
and her pain flows
in teardrops of liquid heat
as she is withdrawn from the fire
external forces
exert their force
forcing her to fall
as she cools too quickly
her basic structure altered
but not quite reorganized
she solidifies
into a fragile kind of beauty
a transparent strength
rigid illusion
of fluid grace
which will shatter
if not handled with great care
