No one wants
the broken girl,
the shattered girl
with a heart of glass,
and if you ask
she'll never tell you
what made those cracks
in her shell of joy.
Because if you found out
what she went through,
what she spent to
get here today,
she fears you'll pray for
another girl.
another way.

Because no one wants
a broken window
with spiderweb lines
all up and down,
or the leaky boat
with a chance to drown.
She WANTS to dance,
but haunts the corner
of her deepest darkest fear
instead.

She watches in silence
and quiet defiance
as the shiny new toys on the shelf
get picked first.

and it HURTS

because she knows that there's no appeal
in choosing the choo-choo with
one square wheel.
and she just wants to feel
like she is the same,
not a name
on a book
on a therapist's shelf
but her TRUE SELF.

And she wants to
kiss someone who will understand,
but no one
will
hold
her
hand.

Because we've all got bruises
that set us apart,
but who wants the girl
with the bruise...

...on her heart?

Wow. This is deep and raw and beautiful. From a poetic POV, you did well with rhyming and rhythm. Thank you for sharing this.

Comparing one's heart to that of glass was great. The description really did speak to me.

Everything great in the world comes from neurotics. They alone have founded our religions and composed our masterpieces.
