Staring into the mirror I curse my own face for lack of recognition. Where are you certainty?

Where are you indeed…

Water! Water will help.

Splashing it up at my face I feel the cool of it sting my eyes. My hot, red, puffy eyes. When did you become so weak, my love? When did you become so weak?

I return to my mirrored stare. I look at myself looking back into myself. I don’t know this girl.

There’s fragments of mirror everywhere and I’m staring at the wall.

    Love this piece Mel… I’ve spent many a 4am lying awake contemplating “life”.
    Hopefully, it keeps you on your toes emotionally… keeps you moving forward!

    I frequently wake at 4:xx am, and I think it is often 4:44am, but that is probably one of those false impressions because 4:44 is so noticeable. But I digress. Back in the day, I would get home at 4:xx am after going out. Now I wake up at 4:xx am. And it is a dark time (emotionally). Even when there is no pressing issue to worry about, you can find one when lying in bed awake at 4:xx am.

    Beautiful work Mel, not least because you have hit a point to which so many people will relate, and your imagery is enigmatic and sultry.
