I Want To Be A Crystal Vase

I want to be a crystal vase

permission must be asked before im touched

and even then, ever so gently

with delicate fingers

And blushing cheeks

i want to be an oil painting

admired from a distance

behind a velvet rope

a pane of glass

one of a kind

i want to be looked at with love

spoke to as if every word that passes my lips is gospel

Touched so softly

as if being too rough would smear me

humans are so fragile

made of bones that break

skin that opens

hearts that stop

Yet we’re so reckless with one another
