Romance Fest šŸ« Glass

Time to fall in love! Welcome to Romance Fest 2021, an annual tradition that celebrates the magic of Valentine's Day.

This collection features eight short free-verse poems related to the theme of 'longing.' And to make things more fun, each piece is paired with a matching song.

Get ready, because Cupid's arrow is about to fly.

Glass

Tread gently for my heart is made of glass.

Tread gently for my heart is made of glass. One rushed misstep, or you shall never pass

Tread gently for my heart is made of glass. One rushed misstep, or you shall never pass the bridge so often drowned beneath blue tears

Tread gently for my heart is made of glass. One rushed misstep, or you shall never pass the bridge so often drowned beneath blue tears that have accumulated much throughout the years.

Speak slowly, dear, for sometimes I ignore

Speak slowly, dear, for sometimes I ignore the tender words turned flotsam on my shore

Speak slowly, dear, for sometimes I ignore the tender words turned flotsam on my shore because I've never learned which tones are true.

Speak slowly, dear, for sometimes I ignore the tender words turned flotsam on my shore because I've never learned which tones are true. It's hard to think so diff'rently of you.

I've never loved in any other way.

I've never loved in any other way. I sacrifice my night, my dawn, my day,

I've never loved in any other way. I sacrifice my night, my dawn, my day, my very breath, though no one ever sees

I've never loved in any other way. I sacrifice my night, my dawn, my day, my very breath, though no one ever sees these deep, forsaken, festered scars beneath.

So tread here gently, pray don't let me fall,

So tread here gently, pray don't let me fall, or never let me love you more at all

So tread here gently, pray don't let me fall, or never let me love you more at all with all that's left of me that I can give.

So tread here gently, pray don't let me fall, or never let me love you more at all with all that's left of me that I can give. Once glass is shattered, it can never live.

END

The song paired with this poem is Billy Joel's 'And So It Goes.'

The song paired with this poem is Billy Joel's 'And So It Goes.' On another note, always remember that it's important to love yourself and your faith first.

The best romance is not the one that completes you, but the one that complements your completion.

Thank you for reading, and have a lovely day. šŸ« Ann Sepino (annsepino.mystrikingly.com)
