I Was Her Mirror by DragonSkulls
    Mirror contest Contest Winner 

I watched her as she grew,
so precious, so innocent.

A birthday present
the day she turned six.

Inseparable ever since.

I remember her mother
letting her try the soft pink lip gloss
the very first time.

I watched as she blossomed
into the beautiful young woman,
graduating the top of her class,
countless friends,
limitless possibilities.
I saw her smile every morning.

But sadly came the day
when all I became...
a mirror
to momentarily hold her addiction.

I held her cocaine,
those perfectly cut lines
of imaginary fulfillment.

I witnessed her beauty fade.

Not long after came the day
I was found,
lying next to her lifeless body.
The laced cocaine
still smeared upon my face.

I watched her grow,
so precious, so innocent.
Then I watched her die.
