Girl of GlassPhoto: "Shards" by *ether (from deviantart.com).
is a fragile piece of glass afraid of its invisibility as i am? in my mind i know i am loved yet in my heart hides a scared lost little girl so fragile, vulnerable, afraid of losing that precious love, that belonging ashamed she does not deserve it but scared of being pressed aside unnoticed forgotten in the wake of a real girl prettier, brighter, gentler, sweeter, more vivacious, sparklier, smarter, happier, more alive twirling around the floor in her shiny dress drinking in all the attention showing me as dull and drab and unimaginative and i am convinced once again that i am so much less than others so easily bypassed, forgotten and dismissed. i quiver in fear. i am so afraid to be ignored. my courage flees. i am afraid to tell you i crave your attention afraid that will run you away and i will cease to be.
