My reflection


Oh, how I hate that mirror
Please break it down
The nights I stand gazing,
I'm on my knees, begging you please
I don't want to look anymore...
No, I don't want to see

The
Ghost staring back at me  
Driving me to insanity
Stuck in between…
Glass and false reflections
Taking over me


Even I don't recognize myself
I don’t know the person staring at me
I know it’s me

CAN’T YOU SEE!
I’M IN TOO DEEP!

This feeling, itches….
Down inside flesh and bone

Why do you laugh, when I cry?
Why did I do the things you told me to?

You reflect back at me
I know what my eyes cannot see
I will never be free

My arm still burns  
 Cuts and bruises covered me
Just thinking of it
Gives me a rush

'Maybe two more pounds less
You will look and feel much better'

I know it is wrong
I try not to follow along
But I’m not always strong

I always need more ,
More to feel better

I can't necessarily blame you
When it is me...

I am you
And you are me

In the end
My thoughts
Will Be
The only thing
Killing me

Just another silly poem

Look in the mirror and don't shy away from what you see.
Acceptance is the first step.

not silly at all! your words are so very true, the internal battle we have with our own demons. in the end, it is just our own fears that are our worst enemy. yet seeing this most ugly part of ourselves... BEING our own worst enemy... it may be what we need the most in order to really love who we are.

well done! much blessings! :)

No that's good, so far no one on this sight has moved me emotionally enough to get me close to tears through literature.

Very well done.  And body image issues are NOT just for teens.  Us *ahem* older ladies have frequent conversations with that horrid creature staring back at us in the silver glass.  Keep writing, you are very good at expressing yourself creatively dear.
