Strawberry And Mirrors

She sees herself
In the mirror
A violent beauty
She knows will wither

Her eyes meet hers
Reflecting age
And all the remnants
Of younger days

The strawberry kisses
That she had given
To nameless faces
To motives hidden

The sour regrets
That she still tastes
Between her lips
Make her grimace

And all she knows
Has been distorted
And all she sees
Are through thick glasses

She takes her place
Upon her bed
And on her pillow
She rests her head

And without thinking
Her eyelids drop
Her heartbeat slows
To a final
