~ The Crystal Ball ~

Incredibly beautiful and rare French crystal ball on stand circa 1900 from DC member Doe and Hope

Oh, crystal ball,

what do you see?

would you give me a glimpse

somewhere in time,

of what the future has in store for me?

~

My days are filled with dreams,

nights full of visions.

Emotions trapped inside –

a mental prison,

I plead for release.

~

Oh, crystal ball,

I can’t cry anymore,

my tears have turned to dust.

I long for a heart that

I can trust.

~

Oh, crystal ball,

How can I prepare myself?

will I have the strength to

let my guard down, or

will my heart remain on a shelf?

~

Oh, crystal ball,

what do you see?

I lean in a bit closer, but

all that I see is a 

reflection of me –

Alone.
