In the looking glass she sees her. There’s a familiarity surrounding her, yet she doesn’t know who this is. Someone she once knew so well, now a stranger gazing back at her. Time has pushed her forward through doors she never wanted to enter and she can’t find her way back through. In her mind she’s retraced her steps a thousand times trying to understand her present existence.
Suddenly it’s clear and her eyes are opened to the truth. She weeps. Overcome with sadness, tears make their way down her face. She wonders if she’ll ever be able to reclaim what she’s lost, but her heart knows it’s too late for her. As the tears flow, slowly falling to the ground, she wonders if they’ll nourish the soul that feels empty and alone.
