Poem: Reflection 

Sometimes when I look into your eyes

I see what it used to be

Before everything got so complicated

But then I take a step back

And let my eyes go slightly out of focus

That’s when I see what is really there

A person who has let disappointments

And hurt feelings change everything

So instead of putting on my glasses

And seeing it all more clearly

I just finish putting on my makeup

Hoping it will help paint on a smile

Then I walk away from my mirror

Pretending I am ready to face the world
