You might as well know: I’m broken.
I don’t smile for the mirror—  

I see things differently than others, for instance:

I.  am.  fat.

I know I'm technically not but I’m still fat—
and anyway, who said technicalities matter?

I paint pictures over the reflection so I can’t see my image;
I've lost the ability—because apparently i can’t paint
since my reflection doesn’t look a damn thing like me;

my mind fractures, as inanimate objects whisper lies to me each day

and i need a new set of paint because i’ve used mine up while composing lies across unbroken glass,
smudged with steam from cold showers, i drink in the fog—
leaden lies drag me down
and my mind’s eye sees more perceptively than i’d like,

i’ve been using toxic paint, toxic paint, but the crimson on the counter...well, technically— that’s not paint;

and, apparently, i was wrong— technicalities might matter

because, after all, technically, you’ve never said you loved me,

and mirrors can’t tell lies.
