Lovely girl,
Easily broken yet so solid.
Lovely girl,
You had no need for knowledge.
To confused by the world to know what to do.
Yet so many people,
They're jealous of you.
You cry from inside,
Wanting to reach out,
But not wanting to catch someone's eye.
You didn't reach out either,
The day that your soul died.

This one came into my head one day as I was thinking about a friend. Enjoy.

On one hand, I LOVE the concept and your word choice was great. On the other hand, I'm not a huge fan of your flow here. I think it comes off choppier than you intended. Still, it's a good poem!
