Glass Series

Glass. A tinkling, shimmering

piece of light trapped in a frozen liquid.

Glass. A color unto itself as it catches

 the eye of the sunbeams.

Glass. Fragile. Breakable.

Like a human too blind to see

Glass. Mysteriously simple,

Like a chalice of wine.

Glass. A shard separated from reality

Trapped in the throes of oblivion

Glass. High on being an illusion

Of mocking immortality.

Inspiration comes in strange ways and in the places one least expects it. This series is entirely dedicated to my friend, Brittney Nelson also known by her pseudonym, MissBAMF. Her stories are about the darkness that we harbor within us and shadows we shield ourselves from. Her writing has a touch of warmth in places where light often cannot reach. And through the suffering of her characters, her readers (myself included) find courage and liberation from our own demons. Find her work here
