Random Poem:

House of Glass.

I'm seen as a monster, with lies and deceit,
Distorting reality, but I run in defeat.
The stone in your eyes, shatters so fast,
Frail are these walls, my house of glass.
I glitter and gleam, in skies of defeat,
You threw me a bone, I crumbled beneath.
Flutter and flip, through air of the past,
I speak only truth, my house of glass.
Catch as I fly, and never let go,
My evil will shine, and see you as foe.
I seem so fragile, I trick and trap,
Anyone and everyone, my house of glass.
I taste your flesh, so wonderfully sweet,
I dine on despair, of trembling defeat.
Within our mass, the magic I cast,
Rendered you breathless, my house of glass.
Your house is by mine, my fortress of glass,
I'll plague all your luck,  and burn down your past.
When I'm needed most, control me I dare,
You'll know my name, as folk of the fair.
