Looking In The Mirror


Look in the mirror
I see, the past me


pretty
skinny
strong
unbreakable



Look in the mirror
I see, the girl slowly drifting away

tired eyes
bones
frail

Look in the mirror
I see, the girls almost gone

no more light in her eyes
unhealthy
tired
broken



Look in the mirror
I see, the girl gone

cold
heartless
exhausted
gone

At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
