• I stare into the bathroom mirror unadorned,
    the ghastly creature in the glass is so abhored
    Disheveled, matted fur and empty hazel eyes
    Blemishes and forehead clothed in aged lines
    I clench my fists and glare upon this fur'ious beast
    The smold'ring rage increasing both in size and heat
    Glass has shattered, covering the floor
    Blood is pooling, lost before the storm
    Trailing madness seeps between my bloody teeth,
    I smile in joy upon the havoc I have wreaked.
    But then in the euphoric light I realize
    The memories that lived beyond those hazel eyes,
    Than now, once recalled, can seldom be returned.
    Forever more I live inside a world I've spurned.
