Mirrors and Mornings

I despise mirrors and mornings


Mirrors show me myself

For all that I am and for all that I’m not

They reflect my face and show the scars

It shows me the person I am and what I can’t be

That I can’t be the guy she likes and I can’t change it


But I loath the mornings even more

Its raises wash over me, reviling me

Without its light the minor couldn’t show me to myself

Or show me to the world for what I am and what I’m not

 And it shows me to her in all my imperfections

But worst of all it shows me the guy she does like

And how she looks at him


So break the mirrors and let the sunset come soon

Because I don’t know if I can stand these mirrors and mornings anymore
