Shattered Glass Girl

By BeautifulCorruption

She was once a young girl
Not a care in the world
She crashed hard, got scarred
Burnt, broken and charred

Dived deep in ocean shame
Washed her innocence away

The poor little girl with the crying eyes
Became the bent silhouette with the lying disguise
Knew no feelings, remorse or regret
Until she broke the only heart that she had left

Choked underwater, guilt in her throat
Lost all light or sense of hope
She knew she had let everyone down
Discovered it was better to drown

Because deep in the sea her peers could not reach her
She'd hurt, but at least nobody could see her
She screamed, but her cries were left unheard
Because the ones that did care grew disappointed with her

Tried to sputter out truth, but her dying engine
Coughed up smoke and couldn't form a sentence
The mask has come down, and they see her as is
A shattered glass girl with only one wish

To have the ones that she has let down
Know the truth is there, it just has to be found
She cannot bear the aftermath of what she has done
Not lied or broke her word, but upset everyone

    I felt her helplessness, I wanted to reach down deep below the surface and pull her back up from the depths of her pain... Thank you...

    i know this feeling, and you described it beautifully. such misunderstoodment, such agony. the desire for someone to hear your pleas, but instead they walk over you like a naked dead body. loved this work, and the imagery is very dark indeed

    very touching and kind of sad. but full of life all over the page. although a subject to not be taken lightly, i really liked how descriptive and detailed you are. it really made this poem come to life. excellent poem!

    If you try to make them all happy, you will go nuts and be miserable, and then nobody will be happy, cheers!
