Stained-Glass Heart

by Jacklynn Uhlig

I live in a glass box
I observe crystalline structures, my source of entertainment
As I am not permitted to leave (Which is no fault, but my own)
The box is crafted in likeness of myself
A fractured-mirror reflection
Of my stained-glass heart
Gently, must be guarded by
My steel-vault brain

My stained-glass heart
Where sunbeams streak through and scatter
Refracting to infinity,
They light up lifeless, vast walls with rainbow brilliance

But requires the presence of sunbeams.
