The Mirror

The Mirror

A Poem by PandaPeaceful

She made me feel
like I was of no
worth.
Like I was a burden
in the mirror. 
She would stare 
at me.
Her big brown eyes-
Shattered by the
world beneath.

Although my breath
fought for her 
consent,
She fled on skin and
bone,
Until the shining scythe,
sliced her brutal
neck.

My eyes condemned the
burning reflection,
as the girl who once
graced the damaged
mirror,
lay empty on
a bed of redness.

I'm up and down on this one. Overall, it's a win. Why? Because I got the idea. Or my version of what the idea was. And there were parts that I liked. Can you tell that there is a "but"coming? (Smile)
I almost felt like you rushed a bit on this one. Big brown eyes... Simplicity, or cliché?
Maybe I think too much, but I'm supposed to give you whatever the piece creates in me, right?

Thank you! I really appreciate it.
I do like it very much. The mirror is a great metaphor for looking into ourselves but also looking into a mirror does stimulate self contemplation. Your poem is quite simple but a very powerful description of self harm. I particularly liked your images 'shining scythe' and 'bed of redness'. One minor slip - I guess 'a' in line 2 should be 'I'.
Well done for this .
