Gray Reptilian Skin

I looked at myself in the mirror today and hated what I saw

That stranger's reflection is mine

Long sharp-clawed nails and thin bony fingers

Rough gray reptilian skin with mounds of lumps and bumps

Razor sharp teeth like a lioness hunting its prey

Blink less and soulless eyes like a fish

I was hoping for meaning and depth but instead ended up with nothing.

That stranger's reflection is mine

And I hated what I saw today.
