They say it is in the eye of the beholder, but what do “they” know?
But I guess that I agree,
Because on a daily basis I have multiple people approaching me, telling me how they find me beautiful.
My hair, my eyes, my face, my figure-
But when I look into the mirror, their accolades do not match what I see.
And no, I do not see ugliness when I glaze into that glass contraption-
I see nothing. Absolutely nothing at all.
I guess that means I am empty inside.
It is terrifying to see nothing when you look at yourself.
It’s like, if there is nothing there then how am I existing?
