An honorable mention in the Open Lyric Submission Contest; Inspired by Chance song No Better Blues
Written by Mariam Salukian
My glass of faith has shattered and I–the prisoner of these walls–fall celled into my destruction.
He told me that I must believe and later embrace. He spun my thoughts, my guilt, my lust. And when I needed him he came by my side.
He bent down and cradled my body. He raised my broke eyes to the lightening in his. He said I was beauty, the coming more so.
But beauty is dust–and when I’ve shattered the glass, picking the pieces comes with spilt blood.
