Shattered

She's alone in this world, all alone
She knows the truth, and it's clear in her eyes
No one can make her feel better
Not with tears in her beautiful eyes

Flinches when I try to touch her,
Prays when the room fall silent.
Hates the noise of life
Love is like something violent

She collapses against the wall
trembles when I call her name

She screams for a God that doesn't care
she curses the wind at the window
She's calm when the rain comes
When she's pulling her hair

I feel so helpless, so helpless
but how can I fix a broken mirror?
It's glass shattered and cracked to pieces,
a image she always misses.

She collapses against the wall, shaking
trembles when I call her name.

I reach for her, just once I try
But when she looks up it's with hate
hate for a world she doesn't fit in
And so a tiny piece of her soul died

She collapses against the wall, shaking
trembles when I call her name.

I plead for her to look back up, to see the light
but she has no hope, she doesn't believe.
Doesn't believe in me.
And so I turn, leaving her in fright.

She collapses against the wall, shaking
trembles when I call her name.

She calls for me now, in a voice I've never heard
I hear the longing, and all the pain
But her face is calm, and I know she hears me
I open my arms to her, and she smiles

As I take her to the bed her heart beats so steady
Like she never was broken.
But even I kiss her lips I taste the salt of her tears
She gives into me. She'll heal when she's ready.

First of all, I'd like to say that the title goes along really well with the poem.  It was really good! In the second stanza, the simile helps make the poem better.  Another part that I really liked was the broken mirror.  The repetition of collapsing against the wall helped the reader remember what it's all about.  You're a great writer... So keep writing!
