Reflection: A Curious Musing

I look into her eyes and immediately, I see who she is, in her entirety, reckless and fearful, driven and beaten, sweet and bittersweet…

I see that she is strong, yet fragile, and keeps that fragility under wraps,
as the world will gobble her up, and she will disappear…

I see that she feels guilt, for another time, in another persona, and harbors secrets known only to her, and the boogeyman…

I see that she is deep into a longtime longing, for that which she can no
longer articulate, but there’s something in those eyes…

I see that she sometimes drinks too much, deep purple shadows a dead
giveaway for all the wine put away, the night before…

I see that she has dreams that she knows in her heart of hearts will never
come true, but she holds on, stubbornly and willfully…

I see that she is fighting time, staving off the inevitable, raging inside that everything comes so late, if at all…

No matter. We’ve seen enough. For now.
