Peeling the layers of my inner self away

To get to the core;

The root of it all.

Scared of what I could find

I cringe at unfamiliarity

Reflection is the enemy.

I stand at the mirror

Looking at a stranger

On the other side.

She points and laughs.

Bandages upon bandages

Mask my insides.

Ones which have held me

Together for eternity.

Eternity ends today.
