Fragile as glass, misty, blurred, opaque

Everything hidden, everything at stake

Keep others away, never transparent

A shroud she’s worn as a deterrent

Who she is hidden away, as light diffused

Quietly sitting on the sidelines, subdued

Until one-day honesty and trust gained

No longer the need to be constrained

Never more a desire to hide or be sad

Joyous freedom was hers to be had
