A Crystal Rose

8. A Crystal Rose
By Jessica Ferroni

Hard and smooth as crystal,
brightness dimmed by hardship
and pain.


He goes on as he can,
a mask and a wall to
protect him. Will he
shine, yet?

Beautiful and delicate as
a rose,
Yet afraid to open for fear
of being vulnerable.


She brushes them off,
distancing herself.
What can become of her?


Somewhere in the middle,
they may meet.


A crystal rose will bloom.
