Girl floating by
So distant from the world
Or so it seems
Lost inside herself
Avoiding mirrors each day
Not wanting to see the outside
She spends each moment looking around
Hoping not to look in a mirror
But one day
Looking in a mirror
She could see all her imperfections
Eyes, ears, nose, and mouth
Every part of her an imperfection
Every inch a mistake

She was once beautiful
But that all changed
With someone so close
If only he could see
That he was slowly tearing her apart
Telling her each day she was a mistake
She believes every word
One day she looked in that mirror
And couldn't help but cry
Looking at her imperfection
That day was today
