I Gave You Love Made Out Of Glass

Broken Glass Heart

I Gave You Love Made Out Of Glass


I gave you love made out of glass

So you could see right through

And to decide if what’s inside

Could be enough for you.


It shines in light and sings in breeze,

A special kind of gem,

But if it’s cracked in evil act

Uncertainties will stem.


So in you peered to take a look

At reckless, foolish youth

And yet you smiled despite the wild

Of my most secret truth.


You kept it safe for just a while

Until your feelings fled

And then the weight became too great—

Glass broken in your stead.


No longer can I make glass love

For anyone to own

Because without your warmth about

My heart is made of stone.
