The Crystal Cage

Written by: Shannon ChemicalEyes

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 fa├žades. 

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..
