Battle #27

Every day she walked past the shop window
Pretending not to look inside;
Sheโ€™d stop and check reflection, seeing within
The clothes the mirror hide.
While moving away she checked her pace,
Keeping it casual and slow
While thoughts raced with dreams of gowns and lace–
Her face carried the glow.

    I like the narrative quality and the character development in this poem. Very nice.
