tinted glass.

in the window.

Peering inside
Through tinted glass
I can see her clearly
But I am fooled
By my own eyes
Unfocused and bleary

Pure happiness
I love her smile
I adore how she glows
I envy her
Such confidence
In her beautiful soul

But lovely girl
She’s no stranger
Behind the clouded glass
That’s a mirror
My reflection
I see myself at last


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
