That Girl is a Glass Statue, by Kephra Rubin

That Girl is a Glass Statue

Some say she’s a whore
Desperate to love for sure
Love her, leave her and nothing more
Pity her because she’s so impure

But I say that girl is a glass statue
Slim and smooth
If she gets bumped or brushed by you,
She’s sure to tip and crack right through

The glass comes crashing down

Now she’s broken right there on the floor
Where everyone says to leave her for sure
But no, I know what that pain is like
So, I try… foolishly, I try

Picking up her pieces
Edges once smooth
She brakes just like razors
Cut into you

Hard, but brittle

My blood in the shards
Too hard to heal pain
Too far to be changed
Too scared to be faced

So she runs away

Not a whore
Just a glass statue
And cold glass can’t bend
So she tries again, and again, and again

She’s not a whore

That girl is a glass statue

Hell… maybe I am, too.
