There was a time when I’d look in the mirror and see a beautiful, beaming face staring back. Long blonde curls, glassy green eyes, perky lips always curved into a smile.
And now that reflection is distorted.
It started with the smallest blemish and I didn’t think much of it, but now it’s spread.
A twisting Glasgow smile, a dead, milky eye; straggly hair that hangs in clumps.
No one else sees it. They say I’m being “stupid” or “paranoid”.
But I see it every day.
A warped ugliness that eats at my flesh and needs to be cut out.
