we live in glass buildings
or so we try to appear
getting naked for the public
not so much physically
but baring our souls
out on facebook and blogs
on tv shows and advice columns
painting our lives
in the colours we choose
but what happens
behind the closed curtain
when viewers are shut out
but the show goes on
as it surely must, yet in private
we pretend that we live
in glass buildings – all windows
but don’t we know
how easily they shatter

  1. I love how the poem is tackling a really serious topic we are facing nowadays !! I love the imagery and the metaphors. They fit so well in the context. Another great poem of yours!!
