Mirror
used to be outside of me now
vacuumed
in at solar plexus,
inverted:
can see myself from every angle;
wracked brain nitpicking every square inch of my body, my mind;
all analyzed all the time –
I swear there is bleeding in my cerebellum –
always cut myself trying to pick up
alone
broken shards reflecting
my brain
from the
floor.

I thought that this piece was amazing. Honestly, it's what most girls feel/ think about when they look at themselves in the mirror.
