In sluggish stream I flowed from rifted rocks,
As flames broke up the stones, and fire applied
The unleashed ardour of the furnace-heat;
My form capacious now is clear as ice.
Yea, many long to hold me in their hand,
Fingering my slippery shape in dainty grasp;
But I befool their minds, and while I lay
Sweet kisses on their lips that press me close,
And urge their tottering footsteps to a fall.


Answer

Glass
Hide

Good teaser, although I would have appreciated a breakdown of all the clues in the answer.

The poem itself: EXCEPTIONAL JOB, if you actually are the one who wrote it.

The clues, in the first half, I get. In the second half...I don't so much understand. Why do so many people want to hold glass? Why does the glass kiss us? Why does glass make us fall?
