aging distortions
from my reflection
in a dirty mirror.

Relentless thoughts
telling me to accept
whatever people put
in front of me.

Constant ridicule
about my sensitivity
Emotions poured back
into the bottle.

Aches and pains
my body and mind
pushing towards
a regressive failure.

Admonition induces anxiety;
social presence pulls
a blanket of darkness
over my eyes.
