I was vainly staring at myself in the mirror and when I realized that my face seemed longer I laughed. It’s not a bad thing. Enjoy.
I know I am older
I stare into my own eyes confused
This is me.
But I glean over the imperfections
(The ones that I find perfect)
and notice high cheekbones
scars from pimples
awkward finely tuned eyebrows
eyeliner that hasn’t been removed
“oh my god”
my skin glows a warm red
My face is ripe.
it can only go downhill from here
