I look in the mirror,
Apply that last bit of eye make-up…
Twist the brush,
Swoop the glittery powder…
Standing back and smiling,
My reflection retorts….distorts…

I hear a hiss in my ear,
       "Look at you, you love every person who talks to you... so pathetic…so naiive…so trusting…..such a fool."

I close my eyes tightly, I grip the edge of the counter, my knuckles white.
       "Look at you, you don't know when to stop do you?.....so eager…so loving…so innocent…such a fool."

I bite my lip and refuse to look at her,
This hissing demoness who resides behind my eyes…my dark brown eyes….
       "Look at me!" she exclaims, "I will protect you, foolish girl,"

She fans around me like a cloth of smoke,
       "I will protect your foolish heart, and never let anyone touch it again….you bruise too easily, child."

I turn my head and let my hair drape across my eyes.
       "Look at me! Look at me! No one will know,"

She smiles twistedly, and I know in my heart I can't accept her wish.
She only wants control…she only wants to see me fall.

So I back away and stand up strong.
But before turning off the light, I look her in the eye,
"There is nothing wrong with my heart. There is nothing wrong with loving."

Closing the door, I smile as I hear her frustrated screams,
Distorted by glass and cold hatred.
comments appreciated :)

:D Slam the door in her face! O_o I don't mean to be mean... But I think you should be allowed to love whomever you want. Even if your heart is only bruised a bit more, at least you can smile because it happened.

yeah, I hear yah ;) but in this poem, the "demoness" is really a symbolic reflection of my doubts and self-hatred :/ as depressing as that sounds XD
But, in a way, I did slam the door in "her" face ;)
