Each glance in the mirror kills me.
It brings back the memories, the pain.
I just want to forget
I need to quit glancing at the flaws in the mirror.

Each reflection in their eyes stabs me.
It shows who they think I really am, someone else entirely.
I just want to move on.
I need to quit looking into the eyes.

Each hand I clench on the edge of the sink chokes me.
It drags me back through all the anger, the fear.
I just want to be free.
I need to quit comparing myself to them.

Each fist smashing the glass shocks me.
It relieves all the worries, the anxieties.
I just want to erase it all.
I need to quit destroying the me in the reflections.

Each shard falling to the floor calls to me.
It slices through my skin with ease, nothing left to fight it.
I just want to close my eyes and sleep.
I need to quit holding on to nothing.
