Is This Real?

She smiles

"Is this real?" she wonders

She looks in the mirror, and tries to smile

She looks at old photographs and sees her old smile

She can no longer tell which one is real and which is fake

Her life has become a blur

Nothing makes sense

What's real?

What's fantasy?

Is this happening?

Or is just a memory?

She longs for a new life

Somewhere no one knows her

And she knows no one

A fresh start

A new beginning

She falls asleep and dreams a far-away place

She was as happy

She couldn't believe it

She smiles

She looks into the mirror

"Is this real?" she wonders
