You stand there staring at me
Like I did something bad
Like I was a guilty for something but what?
All I could do was stare back
Who is she? What does she want?
I just kept looking and staring and wondering but
She looked sad, heartbroken
What happened to her?
Where’s her smile, her laugh and happy looking joyful face?
Then I just remember I was staring at myself in the mirror.

Great twist at the end, I think it's a little bit of what we all see in the  mirror!

The simplest of works are sometimes the most striking and beautiful, which is the case with this work! Never stop writing:)

This is really good :) I didn't expect the ending, I kinda expected it to be sappy and cliche, but it was really cool.
