The Girl Behind The Glass

It's not as if she hides herself,
or often wears a mask.
Still no one ever tries to know
the girl behind the glass.

It seems her voice cannot be heard,
her shadows never cast.
There is no proof that she exists,
this girl behind the glass.

She's trapped behind transparency,
her self-esteem's abashed.
She watches people live her life,
that girl behind the glass.

Perhaps you saw yourself in her,
or maybe saw contrast
For some reason she caught your eye,
the girl behind the glass.

You wanted to reach out to her,
you reached and you did grasp.
With this action, you set her free
the girl behind the glass.

I like this! For some reason I first thought the girl behind the glass was a mannequin ha but this is still a good poem :)

I like this! It's very well written! Submit it! It's full of sorrow, yet there is hope too! It's easily relatable! Well done!
