Glass House

As the walls of modern houses
and windows all over the world
I am so special
Look through me
Touch me
Forgetting the ice I invoke
or loving me because of it

Find me raw
Without my frame
I lie alone on the ground
My jagged edges cutting your skin

But you are a peaceful flame
A candle of such warmth
that you may melt me down to
whatever I truly am
And I hope to God that
I won’t hurt you anymore
