late night shopper

supermarket window shows a ghost
of the someone she'd once been
not dumpy and dull with swollen legs
but a girl with sights unseen

such a pretty girl and a bright girl
with a sparkle in her eyes
life with meaning to be seen in
how she's reaching for the prize

eyes growing teary, she's so weary
as she leans against the glass
and slides down to the pavement
as the late night shoppers pass
