Heart of Glass

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2020

I gifted you a heart,
The most beautiful heart,

the very thought
of someone to save you
to hold you
to share the light
of a thousand days with
to hold you over

but the thought does not help

we all expect
a knight in shining armor, 
Princess
we all want someone to
