Dark and opaque

Day 13 - Begin with “I thought I saw…”

I thought I saw my reflection in the mirror
smiling back at me with a crooked smile but
I realised that smile was just a show to cover
the hurt, the dark and the rust.

ever since I was little the normal I saw was
not the normal I wanted. then I grew up and
realised that twenty years had not numbed
the pain, it had just numbed me so I could
not feel it. what I felt was dark and hollow.
all the light around me failed to pierce my
soul that was a black rainbow and my heart
that was dark and opaque
