tub of glass

i'm the only one
who sees you
the only one
who cares
i listen to 
your heartbeat
as you look at me
and stare
i know you want
to leave 
that small salt water tub
but what am i to do?
you're not a 
little cub
way too big to carry
or tuck you in my purse
and if i got you home
my family would think 
they're cursed
i'm sorry to say
my sweet, sweet friend
i have to let 
you be
to swim along
the smooth, clear glass
so far away
from free
