Every Day

I stand here every day watching my reflection.
You stand here every day saying how beautiful I am.
I stand here every day looking at the scale.
You stand here every day laughing how my weight doesn’t matter.
I stand here every day insulting myself.
You stand here every day giving me compliments.
I stand here every day telling myself lies.
You stand here every day telling me the truth.

I stand here every day crying that I’m alone.
You stand here every day reassuring me you’ll never leave.
I stand here every day facing the challenges the world throws at me.
You stand here every day facing them with me.
I stand here every day declaring how I hate myself.
You stand here every day pronouncing how you love me.
I stand here every day knowing I can’t live without you.
You stand here every day holding my hand.

I just read your piece "Reflection" and this has a similar theme and mood. I really love this poem; it's really cute and heart-warming. Love it! :D
