THREE FACES OF ANN



Ann is looking at herself
fogged in a master of disguise
hiding from her broken past
DEPRESSED

beneath the cracks in the mirror
glamoured by nighttime makeup
her eyes emerge within the paint
SEDUCTIVE

looking without cuckoo illusions
cleared of yesterday dreams
Ann sees beyond the mirror
SERENE

This your three brief stanzas encompass a huge psychological trip. I find the final stanza very satisfying.

I like the progression to serenity and had to laugh at cuckoo illusions (b/c I've been there).
