Off To Bed

I get out of the shower
And wrap my towel round me
Then I stand face to face
With the girl I seem to be

I analyze everything
Then I take a second look
Not just on appearance
But the chances I should’ve took

It hurts seeing my reflection
Knowing I'm this girl
I have to look away
Or chances are I’ll hurl

I put my PJ’s on
And think about today
I don't wanna stay for tomorrow
I wanna go away

Soon there's a lump in my throat
And the tears begin to fall
I need someone to help me
But there's no one at all

With one last look I see myself
My eyes that are beat red
I wipe them better put on a smile
Then go right off to bed.

    Rae, I can't find myself either... every time I think..i'm eyes are beat to the punch... I can't see to analyze anything right now a days... this is a very deep and emotional ride... hope you seek and find the help... Have a happy valentine days... ~ :-) Always, * PD
