Glass Heart


via Daily Prompt: Scorched
Glass Heart

Written by S.C.Downey

Her heart was scorched by his love.

Betrayal lingered on his tongue.

Her heart crumbled into pieces in his hands

as the anger from his lips crushed them into sand.

She was no longer the love of his life, for he found someone he treasured more than life.

She stood in pile of shame.

Seeking revenge would make her look lame.

Love hurts, but she knew that light could be found in the darkest tunnel

like that of a kaleidoscope with endless colors.

When he walked away, she noticed the pile of sand that fell from his hands, and

she used it to make a glass heart, and she filled it with self-love.
