just republishing it bc idk why not i like this poem

where you see reflection i see refraction

May 3, 2021

i look in the mirror
glass deceives me,
the girl looking back
mocks me and laughs
reassures me that i'm hideous
the repetition in reactions
over and over
starting to believe the words 
telling me i'll never be beautiful
i know it annoys you
that i can't simply say thank you
when you compliment me
no matter how many times you reassure me i'm
as you would say "brilliant"
i know i'm not
it simply can't change
what i believe to be true
i'm not beautiful
the value you see in me isn't visible through my eyes
no matter how hard i try to see 
whatever you see in me
i advise you to look away
i don't know who you're looking at
but
she's not the same person as me
my mom used to tell me
i'd find my happy ending
but now i'm older and i know
she was lying
my hearts too broken and brittle
to believe the stories
because deep down
i know the truth for myself
i'm beauty...
but
the beast
