Bad days

by Em   Dec 5, 2017

I glance in the mirror


I see an hauntingly familiar face to that of many moons ago...


her face is blotchy
her eyes red and puffy
her cheeks paler
her hair a mess
her make up ruined

and if you could see inside of her mind

you'd see -
words thrown in anger
comments made in jest
abuse of all kinds


all these done unknowingly to how they'd make her feel today

and my goodness

is a
bad day.

    Aw, Sweet Em! This hurts my heart. I feel you, love. Some days are just so much worse than others. Take it one at a time, and remember, you are beautiful inside and out! Sending so much love your way! <3
