“I've learned that no matter how good a friend someone is, they're going to hurt you every once in awhile and you must forgive them for that.”


I look into the puddle, seeing my reflection as perfectly as if I'm facing a mirror.

My dark strawberry blond hair curls around my rosy cheeks.

My bluish-green eyes look distant and strange, almost belonging in the muddy water or the brown-grey sky.

I gaze deeper, searching my soul...

what I find there repulses me.

Quickly I kick small pebbles into the water, breaking apart the face that I so despise.

Walking swiftly away a small tear slides down my cheek, leaving behind a trail of cold, lost soul.

I can't bear myself any longer.
