all these little things: mirror.When you look into the bathroom mirror, what do you see?all these little things: mirror.1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
A girl with hair a mix of shades,
the product of the boxes of used hair dye tossed into the trash can.
She dyes her hair for the attention and compliments she's too afraid to ask for.
The bags under her eyes say she's been awake for far too long,
but she puts on a smile to shield herself from questions.
That God-awful smile.
The crooked, off-center smile she flashes far too often.
The body that's too big and disproportionate to fit in.
The "flattering" layers she stuffs herself in in a weak attempt to hide from the world.
The eyes, full of creativity and appreciation
for everything she's given and worked for.
The hands sore from hours of long work;
pencil marks scattered on the side of her left hand.
The hope that maybe one day she'll be able to look in the bathroom mirror
and love herself, crooked smile and all.
