An odd sort of Poetry · vice and all her ailments

a mess

when I look in the mirror
I try to recognize myself
but I cannot.
I can only recognize
a hauntingly familiar face

-a mess of contradictions
inside of a broken body
leaning hopelessly
on her broken bones-

pretending to be unbroken
so as to not break anything
within anyone else
