“AN ENCOUNTER WITH AN UNLIKELY REMINDER”

I looked at you
and was reminded of whom I once knew
She used to be just like you too
all around the town, displaying her gloom

Why so blue?
Why take it out on me too?
I had no idea what went on
that untold story between you and him

I looked at you
and I quietly shuddered
I remembered
how I’d once despised her

That silly girl with Cinderella-complex
Thank God she’s not back
All I have now is that lone warrior
glaring at me from the mirror…
