Girl of Glass (a Metaphor)

Girl of Glass (a Metaphor)

In a dark, cluttered old antiques shop,
upon a dusty wooden shelf in a forgotten corner,
sits a tiny girl of glass, lost among the nick-knacks.
Her fragile, crystal beauty is barely visible
through the dingy shadows, yet I stand
captivated by her delicate, detailed craftwork.
A phantom radiance somehow glows within this petite figurine,
shining with determined illumination,
through her cloudy, milky surface,
and defying the ages-old layers of dust and grime.
She has my eyes riveted and my mind locked,
and I find my feet unable to budge, as I
ponder her mysterious history: What is her story?
Where did she come from? Why is she here?
I want to pick her up and take her home,
yet my hands are too rough to handle her
dainty fragility, and I slowly turn and walk away,
knowing I'll never again look upon my lovely
but all-too-delicate, tiny girl of glass.
