the mirror

i saw you in the mirror
distressed and helpless
each inch creeping up
behind you.

i saw you in the mirror
scars and bruises, words and lies.
i can’t stop the
tears from coming out.

i saw you in the mirror
a mistake, filled
with pills and shaking
mouthfuls.

i saw you in the mirror
unproportionate and
unready to take on
the world.

i saw you in the mirror
i never wanted to look
but i did anyway
and hated you.

i saw you.
i saw you in the mirror.
