where you see reflection i see refraction

as i look in the mirror
the glass can deceive me
my reflection mocks me
reassures me that i'm hideous
no matter how many times you tell me i'm brilliant
it can't change what i know to be true
the value you see in me isn't visible through my eyes
i don't know who you're looking at but she's not the same girl i am
and i know it annoys you
that i can't simply say thank you when you compliment me
because deep down i tell myself
i'm surely beauty but the beast

    This piece is so beautiful. It's also quite sad, because you ARE amazing. Also, you are a really, really good writer. Don't ever doubt your writing skills.

    good god, I relate to this
    lemme tell you something
    I hate how I look too and everyone says "Nono, you're beautiful!" and stuff like that but I get so uncomfortable
    I know how hard it is to believe and I still don't believe it
    but I'm trying and that's all you have to do for now <3

    I really like the ending! It really shows how indecisive humans really are or doubtful haha.
    For the title maybe "I see refraction but you see reflection"
