A Cold, Cracked Eggshell

My heart shattered glass
My eyes twin rain clouds
My sleeves wet rag cloths
My sobs persistent freight trains
My fingers frozen ice
My surroundings a blurry dream
I make the corners of my lips curve up for the people around me
Even though I myself is a cold, cracked eggshell
Only barely held together.

    wow,you have a very cool style of writing. I see you as someone not native English speaker who is doing really well with imagery in this language. Great poem!
