Summary

Just another experience notch on this belt called life.. Don't mind the stanza breaks. As I said in my profile, I am just really focusing on the content right now. My poems are all still rough.

Denial was her name as she was standing in front of the mirror

?

Her pale reflection glanced back at her as she strummed her brittle hair

?

She had swallowed each one of her problems and was swollen with regret

?

She felt like aballoon and the needle of truth was going to pop her

?

So she did what she thought she had to do

?

Convincing herself it would be the last time, she shut the bathroom door

?

She noticed the stains on her fingers as she slid them down her throat

?

She was becoming a stranger

?

A stranger who craved control of a life that was spiraling down a dark and dangerous path

?

Her throat burned like a flickering flame as she flushed down the vomit of lies

?

She took one more look at herself in the mirror

?

Wiping away all evidence of tears on her pain stricken face

?

Then she walked away with one less piece of herself
