Mirror

Mirror

A Poem by Emo_Cat

I don’t really know


Where I need to go.


And I don’t really care.


I know that life isn’t always fair,


So what we all need to do,

Is live in the moment,


While it can last.



It’s been years since I first put it on,


but I think I’m finally ready to take off


This Dirty, Old, and Hard cast.


All I know for sure,


is that I am here.


Right now.


I am here, and I am here right now.


Even though you have been gone for some time,


And your still not here,


I’m alright with that.


If I ever want to see you,

All I have to do, is look in the


Mirror.


I see you in my eyes,


Your Blue, mixing with my Green,


To make a Sea.


I see you in my hair.


Your unruly and wild curls,


Are slowly over taking my box*-brown hair.


I see you, when I look over myself,


Your beauty, passed onto me.


I have your curves and  your looks.


You’re closer to me than I thought.


You never left,


Only hidden,


By my own pain.


Not until I discarded my mask,


Did I gain my knowledge.

I agree with the others, very relatable. I also agree with barleygirl in that some parts could have been trimmed down a tad as the middle gets a little difficult to read it fluently.

However, the imagination it gave me, and some of the memories it took me back to.. thank you for sharing, and I look forward to reading the rest.

Wow, this was... incredible. I find myself understanding the relation myself, both to someone I loved, and someone who wouldn't let me go. Granted one of them was just similar DNA and bad memories being reflected in my eyes (which I have finally stopped seeing) while the other was someone I loved but was forced to let go when I too gained knowledge in discarding my mask. This is so expressive. Love it.

Thanks for sharing... - L

What a beautifully painful life of lingering, there in the silver reflections. Each line seemed a confession of the now woven forever into the past, all that had been fading into sorrowful places. Aching in your words.

Hard to do, but we must.
"ot until I discarded my mask,
Did I gain my knowledge."
Fake face and hiding real thoughts leave us alone. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.
