Eggshells Under Glass

16 Sep

something more than
a broken footed dancer
broken hearted lover

yet in your spotlight
i’ve become something
less
existing only in the darkness
of your dirty little secret

hidden in the shadows
of whispered exchanges
while she sleeps

but as the sun rises
and Stevie sings
i break down

break through

and size up walking shoes
to fit the feet
walking on broken glass
and eggshells
