Nearly Lost You

mirror
—————
“I nearly lost you…”, the words echoed in the dimly lit truck stop bathroom; I looked at myself in the mirror, thinking back to what almost happened.

The thin white line atop my own reflection staring back at me.  He wanted to end our relationship on a “high” note; I saw his offer as just the opposite.

Tightly grasping the sides of the grimy sink; the only thing anchoring me from going back to that downward spiral of former sins.  Was I really the girl looking back at me now, or still the one with the coke across her face.
