Lillie Ellis

(er.......)

The girl in the mirror


She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass
She is just trying to last
She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass

She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass
She wants to get out
But all she does is put on a pout
She taps on the glass
Hoping someone will pass
She's sick of waiting
And sick of baiting
She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass

She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass
She sits alone
And all she does is moan
She yells for help
But it sounds more of a yelp
She hates her life
And goes for the knife...
She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass

She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass
She believes it's too late
and she doesn't believe in fate
she wants help but doesn't ask
it seems like more of a task
She wants to love
But it seems above
She's the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass

I'm the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass
I am just trying to last
I'm the girl in the mirror
The girl in the glass

    Love what your saying. But you cnat just wait for someone to come help you, you have to go out there and help yourself before anyone will be willing to help you. :) Keep writing. (Report) Reply

    This descibes a lot of us Lillie. 'Let me out' is the silent scream no one hears from the girl in mirror, the girl in the glass. But we must strive to last though so that maybe one day some one passing by will free the girl in the mirror, the girl in the glass. A wonderful ethereal write and all too often true for some of us. A 10+++++ and thank you for sharing.

    Love & hugs,
