The Woman in My Mirror

The Woman in My Mirror

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

The Woman in My Mirror

 

She stares back at me,

And I wonder what she sees.

She knows what lies inside,

And the thoughts of my mind.

 

Knowing all the ins and outs,

She’s aware of the things that crowd

On the inside of my heart,

And I jump with a start.

 

Painfully, only she can see

The true me.

She knows my dreams are a bit out there,

Yet, the woman in my mirror dares.

 

She inhabits my secrets,

And my every need she gets.

Her eyes don’t blink

As she thinks what I think.

 

I tell her that my dreams can’t be,

And I fear she’s starting to believe me.

She looks into my eyes,

And we share a weary sigh.

 

I lift my head and she does the same,

As we ponder the end game.

From within, I hear her faith,

As the woman in my mirror prays.

This is very heartfelt and warming. This art reminds me of myself when I stare at the mirror. I also, have some dark thoughts at times. I mean, who doesn't, right? This is something beautiful. Keep writing, we need someone like you.

Very impactful poem. Wonderful concept with a very solid telling. The title really tells it all: who are we really?

This was wonderful as it starts out in a forlorn way and ends in a hopeful way. This described my day today: started out a mess and ended with something beautiful: one being this poem.

Keep writing beautiful things, friend!

" Knowing all the ins and outs,
She’s aware of the things that crowd
On the inside of my heart,
And I jump with a start"

I loved these lines! It's such a pretty poetry. An enjoyable read :) I have written a poem in a similar context, 'The Fair Mirror', so i can pretty much relate to it :)

keep writing :D
