"Everywhere I look, I see nothing but love;
unless it is the mirror I look into.
Everytime I breathe, my lungs drown in bleakness;
unless it is the ocean I confess to."
^Gah, so much emotion here! I honestly don't even know where to start...this stanza is a whole in itself. So much beauty and so much pain. I especially like the first two lines and hit me so hard. I think there has been a moment in all of our lives where we have seen love everywhere but not in ourselves. Although there was a slight typo, every time is not one word, this was just seeping with emotion that couldn't be ignored. Nicely written.
I love how you keep repeating this theme of routine, it's really heart-breaking. Wanted to congratulate you on the win! This was an emotional yet simple write as the reader is left to wonder about this person, their dreams, who they look into when they see the mirror......congrats :]
