MIRROR

I look into the mirror

I see someone different

Someone I am ashamed to look at

I then sloppily lower my eyes down

I look again, it aggressively break apart

Its pieces scattering everywhere

Leaving blood of pain

And scares as a reminder

Splitting my life into halves:

The Before and the After

I looked at the left pieces

Just to be broken apart

By me fading beauty
