Love isn't everything we want, but it's everything we need....


The mirror
Is inky black
Clouds of dust
Float around
Like fumes
From cigarets
She reaches
To touch it
The image
Dissipates
Disappears
And all is clear
For a second
And for
Just a moment
She can see
That she is..
That she might be...

beautiful.

But, then
She blinks
And the clouds
are back
Grey and puffy
And..
hopeless.
