strong as i feel
I caught your reflection as it passed over the surface of the semi-translucent window to my right. I noticed the same raised cheekbones and delicate square jaw I'd seen in the mirror less than an hour before, as I powdered on my 'natural' complexion and exaggerated my tiny almond shaped eyelids. For a moment I wondered if they only thing I'd ever seen in you was symmetry. I wondered if all that time I was only ever just trying to love myself. I bought a 2 dollar beer and turned right again. I examined my own face in the foggy glass. You passed down the hallway over my shoulder. I stepped out for a smoke.
