A Poem by Courtney

It all looks so distorted. 
My face, my body, my soul.
I can't recognize my reflection, 
the mirror shows something else.
My body is bigger now, filled with emptiness. 
My hair is messier now, tangled with loneliness.
 My eyes are dark, sunken in with tiredness. 
I don't know who I am anymore, you took everything. 
When you stopped loving me, I stopped loving myself. 
There are no more trees, and there are no more flowers. 
There is just fire, and more fire.
