The Gift of the Third Year

A heart made out of glass and broken into several pieces.

The glass delusion is a rare condition.
The afflicted believe
With their whole heart
That they are made of glass
So fragile
That with the slightest touch
Everything will shatter
Love is a rare condition
The affected know
With their whole heart
That without proper care
The fragile
Will succumb to force
Shattered like glass
The gift of the third year is glass.

Each year I write a poem to commemorate our wedding anniversary using the traditional anniversary gift as the inspiration. Click the links below to read the series so far.
