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!

    • 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. :)
