I look into a mirror
my eyes follow the lines
shattered glass, broken,
reflecting the girl inside.

A couple peices missing
Shadows on one side
But some thing there is shining
the hope that burns inside.

An empty room reflected,
The one I left behind,
The one where no one's waiting,
the loneliness inside.

My hand against the mirror,
Cold against my skin,
Showing that I'm really here
the disbelief inside.

A teardrop rolling down my cheek
a black line following close behind
Shadows slowly over-take
the broken, shattered girl inside.

"Things change. And friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody."

You rythme the same word a couple times, i use to do that, what really helps me is type online and look at the synonymes for that word to completly have a new meaning/line to it.
