Being And Becoming

At the mirror she stopped
for a few moments she watched
her reflection fading to nothingness

Raised her shoulders in indifference
turned her back at this mere inconvenience
- panic and horror no more

Besides, she kind of suspected it
- she kind of expected it -
and now she knew

Unceremoniously she put her mask on
"Only when I put you on I'm true
and only then I'm something"...
