Like A Rose by Brenda Pernack

Like a rose
Encased in glass
I am untouchable
Yet so vulnerable

I cry out of one eye
And shine in the other
I'm so conflicted
So restricted

When you gaze inside me
I am exposed
When you try to touch me
I am enlightened

The moon is my shepherd
The stars my hope
I'm so scared

The sun is my vengeance
The clouds my sorrow
I'm so hurt

Touch me and hold
The pieces of my shattered heart

Cradle my love
Don't rip me apart

I am a rose
Petal of tears
Please, break my glass
Hold me, despite my fears.
