I Looked In The Mirror & Saw A Face

I’m serious.
This is not a joke.
I looked in the mirror and saw a face.

It was nothing scary.
Not at all like those horror films.
But it was indeed a face.

It wasn’t creepy.
It wasn’t the face of a stranger.
But it was indeed someone I used to know.

I might even call him familiar.
The beard has grown, the hair unkempt.
But the feature were just the same as I remembered.

I don’t know.
It wasn’t a pleasure seeing him again.
On the contrary I never quite liked him.

But c’est la vie!
Ghosts from the past aren’t adorable.
I swear, I looked in the mirror and saw a face.
