Reflection (2)
Ashley Burdett


Standing before a mirror,
I study me,
All of me.
My eyes pass over features,
Dull features
Calloused features
Hard features
My features.
Eyes that are a little too large
For such a round face.
A nose that juts out
To take up space,
A little too much space.
Lips that crack and break
To form a half smile
In attempts to hide
Teeth that are crooked and yellowing.
A round face framed by dark hair,
Untamed,
Unmanageable,
A wild animal.
Hair that hangs down
And hides small breasts
That swell to tiny lumps
Underneath clothes too tight.
The eyes slide down further still
To see a growing stomach
That protrudes just a little too far.
Legs short and unstable,
Hold the body upright.
Glancing over,
I see me.
Parts of me.
All of me.
Thoughts fill my head
With pain and anguish.

I wish that I was beautiful.

Night falls and light wanes
As the room grows darker
And darker still,
I am able to see myself
In a new light.
My eyes pass over features,
Full features,
Supple features,
Soft features.
My features.
Eyes that are in perfect symmetry
And open with just a tiny
Hint of sparkle.
A nose that holds
More character then nearly
All of those before it.
Lips that are full and supple,
Spread to reveal
The blinding smile of perfect teeth.
A perfect face framed by sable hair.
Combed.
Styled.
Coiffed.
Hair that cascades down
To enhances breasts.
Small, but rounded breasts
That sit above a slimming stomach
And lead, voluptuously, to lean
And perfect legs.
Glancing over,
I see me,
Parts of me,
All of me,
In a whole new darkness.
For here,
In this room as black as death
Where there is no reflection
For me to see,
I come to know that I am indeed
Beautiful.
