Look In The Mirror
Author: Charmaine


Look in the mirror,
And tell me what you see.
A woman with tears,
Streaking down her cheeks.

This woman down and out,
Looking nothing like before.
Internally she’s dying,
Her soul slowly ebbing.

At night she tosses and turns,
Her pillow damp from all those tears.
The demons plague her dreams at night,
Relentless torment rudely awakening her.

She sits up in bed, alone in the dark.
Thinking just what she might have done wrong.
She looks out the window, at the cold eerie night,
Contemplating suicide so she can leave this pain behind.
