Image for the poem Mirror, mirror

Mirror, mirror


O' how I love to hate you
I relish in sheer loathing
it rolls, teeming off my body    
like hot blazing highway  
wave after steaming wave  
 
Disgusted shivers  
ripple my skin  
eroding away  
the thoughtful kind places  
where empathy finds it's harbor  
 
Recoiling, a curse escapes my lips  
hammering home acrimony  
and punctuating, so perfectly  
the disdainful dread  
endless chaos swirling amidst my head  
 
This tug o' war
tormenting in taught perception  
phrenic fisticuffs that foment
causing an odious mental epicenter  
woe, is my internal moral turpitude
 
Within a few seconds,  
these thoughts, and many far worse
strike, like instant lightning  
harshly charing self awareness  
purposely bleeding me out  
 
 
So says the mirror, with every vicious cut.

Struggling with low self esteem and zero confidence has been a lifelong issue/ pain in the ass. I'm a primarily made byproduct of unaware, absent and very bad parenting. I have since learned to (mostly) overcome what the mirror can still randomly utter. However, even after years and years of therapy and practice, it can be a difficult feat.
