Stranger

Written by: Ale A A

Realizing that doors are harder to close than to open
   That the reflection in the mirror is unrecognizable
      Same lips, heart shaped, slightly fuller top lips
         Left eye with the number five staring me down

         But I loath her and her flaws, such weakness
       Not aligned with my strength and confidence
     I recognize the words from those lips 
plagiarizing my thoughts 
 
And I resent this less than chick 
   her overbearing pain an unavoidable force
     rushing in like a tsunami
       uncontrolled and destructive

       All that I was eluded her
    Determination gone...Diminishing my accomplishments 
  with her inability to overcome to let go and rise above
Unable to...unable to...?
