Tap Tap
Tap Tap
My fingers
On the glass.
Some people
Gawp and point
At the girl
Unable to move
From this point.
While others
With pity
Hushed whispers
About me.
No escape.
Can’t flee
From this place.
You pass
By the glass
Eyes ahead
No turning.
No looking.
No seeing.
I walk beside
This path
You take.
The glass between,
Oh how I wish
Wish that it would…
Tap Tap
Tap Tap
My fingers
On the glass.
Help me.
Free me.
Save me
All I want…
All I want
Is to feel…
The same as you.
Not lost
Or confused.
Shatter me,
This world
My life.
And let me find
My place tonight!

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


    • Thank you. You’re perfectly welcome to try and get me a few more if you’d like. 🙂
      No. Most of my work is only just getting noticed, I’m trying to get it in sight a little more but hopefully once more people read my writing the likes may go up.
      I’m glad you think so highly of it 🙂

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
