her again pt. 1

I stare back at the glass

while someone looks at me

her eyes stream pass

as I tried my best to flee

 

I tried to run away

hoping she would be gone

but there she stays

like a person I’ve drawn

 

I stand still

with an expressionless face

even though I felt ill

from the constant face – to – face

 

“you will never pretty”

she mutters with disgust

adding a hint of pity

feeling that comment is a must

 

I felt my heart start to sink

as her words start to hurt

I started to considerably blink

while tears fell on my shirt

 

“you already know that you are”

she suddenly said

creating another scar

which I started to dread

 

her black eyes started to gaze

each and every part of my body

“here comes her nightmarish haze”

as I touch the mirror profoundly
