The Crystal Cage

It sparkles while you sleep, streaming ribbons through your breath, 
Distilled so brightly, glaring lightly yet so neat.
Like acres covered in forest, it blankets your desires,
Barring great cold crystal arms in the form of façades. 

A brilliant glitter haze sheds blinding smothered comfort,
As sketches turn to stairwells and seconds turn to years. 
With a tossed set of keys, and a locket for a heart,
Wandering the crystal, sifting through the shine, 

Patiently you wait, facing only time..

    well, I don't know exactly what this 'crystal cage' is, but this is another poem that showcases your unique use of language, there's even a bit of end rhyme and internal rhyme thrown into the mix, very intriguing...

    Early morning reading to get the mind buzzing. Thank you for sharing your excellent poetry Shannon. Have a fabulous weekend and I hope to see more of your poetry when I get back to the Soup Monday. Usually pretty busy on the weekends with family so don't get to read much. Love, Carol
