I look into the mirror
And stare at the illusion,
Is it me?
Or my eyes playing games?

I see a tired female form,
Looking dazed and alien
Her body seems lifeless,
Like another doll on shelf.

Those empty eyes stare back at me,
Those unmoving lips unable to pour
Out those words that form within her mind.
She’d learnt the lesson of life, the hard way!
