The Mirror
 

 

Looking into the mirror I see only me

 

Eyes glazed over transfixed with a hollow stare

 

I watch myself swallow that lump in my throat

 

An outstretched hand slides down the reflection

 

Two hands joined, I should be at peace

 

A weak smile practices for the mirror

 

As I gaze into my eyes to see what everyone else sees

 

Feet tire as I stand in front of the mirror

 

Light grows on my face

 

I have been standing here all night

 

The same smile grins its biggest lie

 

And I see what everyone else can see

 

~

 

Such velvet copious petals of red

 

With my bloom in awe to the sky

 

Singing sweet fragrance into the warmed breeze

 

Never to brown or fade into a wilt

 

But evil thorns kept sharp prick my fingers

 

Fingers that so cruelly grip my mind

 

Forcing tears of numbness to waste away my cheeks

 

Appearing to be one red rose but really two

 

~

 

So standing in front of the mirror again

 

Feet growing restless as I stare

 

After another day I whisper to myself
 
"No Tomorrow"

 

Such sadness looms over me when I look into the mirror

 

Looking into the mirror I see only me

 

I hate what I always see
