REFLECTIONS OF WHAT HE’S LEFT BEHIND

mirror 3She dares not look
for she fears she will see
what he’s left behind.
It clouds her mind,
for the years have not treated
her with kindness
the way she sees it.
He had feasted on her
and for years they were
both sated, body and soul.
Passions will take their toll
and she reflects upon that
which she refuses to see.
Opened for the world,
but never her own mind.
She finds that images back to front
have a knack of not
showing what lies within.
It is a sin she sees herself
in that light despite her beauty.
