Staring at herself through the tainted hospital glass window
Plump, curvy body clad in patterned summer dress.
Eyes blank, nose carrying the small weight of her sheer glasses
and mind swirling in reflections
like the dry sandstorm in the sunny desert.
Her once robust and meaningful soul
like an adventurer on the lookout for a new emotion
in a standstill, in unwanted hiatus.
Gained weight and with not so perfect skin.
It's not that these sentiments are unfamiliar somehow it matters, now.
Staring at the reflection of her calm face
with not so perfect life and unaccompanied.
A long list of friends, busy in faraway cities
living the life and contemplating their own rains.
An estranged lover, with possibilities and deeply hidden passion
One Elijah with subtle feelings for her dear friend.
And one big lovable family with judgments.
Thinking about her own negative thoughts
she winced, mind playing dirty
and with no referee.
She has to make decision, or not
the nurse is here and she drew the curtain.
