In my shell

In the mirror I see
An image...
Something not as pretty
As I wish to be

Her tongue
She bites down on it
Far too much

Her eyes
They been hidden from the world
For so long

When she doesn't hide
There's beauty
She shines
A grace not known to her kind

Her eyes...
They sparkle blue and green
And her tongue...
Bleeds the words she wishes to speak

There's more to this girl
Than she lets them see
If she just gave herself a chance
Maybe she'd be able to breathe

But she hides in her shell
Curled in the corner
Scared to get hurt
But she's loves easily... if you let her

She'll give you her heart
You'll be her all
She's loyal and kind
Just not always as strong

Sometimes it takes her awhile
But she's trying
Just be patient
Give her time to grow

But don't just let her love you
Don't misuse her
But Even if you did
You wouldn't be the first

She deserves a chance
Give her that
Pull her close
Don't let her go

Maybe just maybe...
she'll finally see the world
