    Covering up scars that will never heal
    Fade into nothing, my thoughts slip away
    Bleeding me numb, hoping this isn't real
    Why should it matter? I'm dead anyway

    You're all I had left, How could you do this?
    I wasn't enough, no matter how hard I tried
    When I needed you most, you put me through this
    You said you'd be there for me. I guess you lied

    And all I have now is just the face in the mirror
    A reflection of everything I used to be
    An image of innocence taken so young
    Now I hate it so much, I can't even breathe

    One in the same, only fighting itself
    Hate and anger stare eye to eye
    So does the face infront of the mirror
    Till the light fades and the reflection dies

    Such an emotive flow. It's painful when others let us down, and we are left to face ourselves. But there is so much inner strength left to be uncovered for sure. I felt this piece. Flow on.

    Having the courage to look in the mirror
    ...is an indication of strength and perserverance
    that lingers still...
    an undercurrent that will rekindle the light
    and fire that once burned so bright
    except when it comes back...this time
    it will be brighter, stronger and wiser than before
    and the face in the mirror...the woman behind the eyes
    emerges...a new woman unable to be broken
    by the same thing again

    pain and heartbreak too...has it's purpose

    Heartwrenching but equally inspiring!

    Great Read Poet,
    Sage
