Stranger in the mirror

You barely recognise

the person in the mirror,

your reflection

is to you

as much a stranger

as your

lonely, senile

next door neighbour,

Your heart

is brimming with self loathing

yet, you yearn for

understanding,

They don’t hear you

across the corridors

over their loud music

your bawling

copious tears

like waterfalls cascading

………………….

………………….

How unfair!?
