Shattered glass

Shattered glass The glass all shiny Stands almost invisible Filling a gap to form a window In the old Georgian house Letting you see the wonder beyond The shiny pane of glass. Until one day It begins to fall apart Looking dull and broken As slowly it crumbles Piece by piece The glass shattering cascading down Resembling a ferocious waterfall, As you roll away Being washed by waves of glass Tumbling down, swept away Like shattered glass

Thank you Dave, sometimes a piece will remain missing, yes trust can be like that and sadly it happens far too often
