Tempered Glass

“You are like tempered glass.”
That is what you said.
I didn’t understand it then.

I understand it now.

I am tempered glass.
I understand after so many years.
I don’t break into splinters.
I don’t shatter into shards.

I break into small pieces.
Such very small pieces.
No sharp edges.
Almost like pebbles.

Such small pieces that can’t be put together.
Just like tempered glass.

    1. Thank you!

      This was one of those prompts where I wanted to write something for it. Something about that phrase “tempered glass” just spoke to me, but I just didn’t know how I wanted to use it. So, I looked it up just to see what that phrase meant. As I read more and more about it, I was like “Huh. Okay. I think I have an idea now.” and it took off from there. 😀
