Fragile Feelings

Broken mirror

Be so very careful,

if you wear your fragile feelings,

upon your sleeve.

There are people,

who can be jealous

and they can be cruel.

At times your fragile feelings

can be trampled upon.

Shattered like a mirror,

the shards digging deep.

They’ll wound your soul –

so, keep those fragile feelings

hidden deep inside,

where no one can guess –

what it is you hide.

It matters to no one

just to you alone.

You’ll share when you choose.

Otherwise, you’ll keep digging

slivers out of your heart

and it will seem you always lose.

Keep smiling through it all –

you don’t want to cry.

Don’t let anyone see your tears,

if they do they’ll guess your fears.

They’ll shatter you,

like a crystal vase,

forever trampling

on the fragile feelings,

that you’re trying so hard to hide

and the hurt will remain inside.
