Distorted Image


Gala Ruiz Maldonado

Every thought from my mind is piercing through my weakened heart, making new wounds

Why is my useless mind creating these harsh and unrealistic ideas and illusions

Are these the pathetic things everyone else sees that I have not been able to realize

Have I been looking at a distorted image of myself in the mirror when the clear view was always right in front of me

Only I can discover my true self, those who are constantly picking away at my every word obviously don't understand

This image is becoming more and more broken as my heart begins to slow after each jagged slice punctures my veins

The clear image of myself shall only be seen through my eyes after every unstable breath of life has disappeared

This distorted image will vanish from my shallow mind and shallow heart as if it never existed

And hopefully the clear and correct image will be left in your hearts as the memory of the girl with the distorted image fades away
