Contritum Speculum

Laura Goher
Student Life Editor

raven hair and 
empty eyes
they stare at me,
full of lies
soulless, glassy,
empty eyes
first impressions
in disguise
my knees give out,
limbs go numb
can’t find the words
on my tongue
never have i
looked so dumb
i don’t know what
i’ve become
words were exchanged,
laughs were shared
see you smiling,
standing there
legs go weak, can’t
help but stare
then i realized
i still care
