when i look in the mirror


when i look in the mirror i cry because the site of me is dead inside.
when i look in the mirror i hate what i see.
im not the girl i use to be.
when i look in the mirror i see a black shadow hovering
but when i look again that black shadow is me.
when i look in the mirror i want to break it
but i cant so i sit there looking at this girl that was taken.
when i look in the mirror i stare at it hoping this reflection would just go away
so i turn off the light and walk away.
when i look in the mirror what do i see i see this girl i wish wasn't me.
so i fix my reflection and put on a smile while the anger, hatred, depression,
and sorrow settles down until tomorrow where i can no longer hate the image i
see when i look in the mirror
Because that image is me

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
