Reflection ~

She dances on her toes
Eyes closed
Oblivious to the possibilities within her reach
Shards of glass broken beneath her
Each step leaving behind
Traces of her bleeding soul
She falters and starts to slip
A faint cry escapes her blood-red lips
She wants nothing more
Than for someone to catch her
A trusted soul
Not withered or broken
Alone in this world
She is trapped in the darkness surrounding her
Screaming for an escape
To a place that does not exist
Crashing down
Her body falls
Shattered dreams paint the walls
Tears escape
From her empty eyes
As she tries to pull herself up again
Broken and bleeding
She is forced to see
Gasping at her shattered reflection…
Who is this girl, staring back at me?
