Looking through that mirror Maddie now can see herself.

As I stare at myself in the mirror I see the color in my eyes fading. I see with every drink I take my beauty slipping away I see myself crying with these long paths where my tears have made routes from falling down my face so much. I can’t see that I girl I once was I can’t see anything that I used to know. My hair is no longer straight but it is a waded up mess, my make is running down. I sit and stare at this horrible mess and continue to drink. I see who I really am when I’m like this. I am not this person that I pretend I am. I am not strong I’m not okay. Everyday I act like everything is going to be fine but I know it isn’t. I hate when people tell me that everything is going to be ok, because I know its not and I seem to be the only one to understand that everything isn’t going to be ok. I’m so sick of this please will some one help me but anyone that has tried to help me I have pushed them away because they have gotten to close to me. They know all my secrets, they know everything and that scares me. My whole life scares me. When I’m in the shower and am thinking about just bleeding out, or when I look at those orange bottles and thinking about over dosing. I mean there is one time when I woke up in the morning and thought to myself “well at least I’m alive” there is something wrong with me. I’m still going to drink.
