It's haunting.

It's digusting.
It's there staring at me
with small dark brown eyes
long lashes
small lips
and pale skin.

It's horrifing.
It scares me
it all appears when I'm near
shiny reflective objects.

It's odd looking.
With small everything
small mouth
and small but wide nose.

It's colorful.
Red spots on it's face
pale skin today
bright pink tomorrow
red the next.

It won't leave me alone.
At home
in stores
in school
even at my friends house.

It's there in the mirror staring at me.
Maybe I just have low self esteem.
