Reflection

Eyes diverted,
repulsed
by the grotesque image
before me

Longing,
to cut the shame away,
to bleach the sight from my eyes,
to be invisible

No words
will convince me,
for I see reflected
in your face
the horror that you see
in me

My head stays low
as the weight of disgust
hangs heavy
on my shoulders

Sickened
by the reflections
I see.
