She looks at the sad case of what once was a beautiful part of nature.
The once beautiful, silky, velvet feel of the skin is now crushed, worthless, and ugly.
She looks at a picture of herself from the years previous.
She sees a thin, energetic, and athletic figure.
She sees a beautiful and healthy red rose.
She turns her body to face the mirror and sees a different image.
She sees a depressed, angry, unfit alcoholic.
She sees a dead rose.
