Mirror – SINGLE B SIDE POEM – REFUGE by Saiqa

posted in: Poetry 2012 | 0

Mirror

I looked in the mirror for the first time
In years
I surveyed my face
Aged, tired, still supple
Every wrinkle told a story
I picked the jar of cream up
Read the label
Opened it
Applied the cream to my face
Carefully
First time
In years
I liked what I saw
I liked what I felt
I felt me again
I felt good
