Reflections of the Mirror

Reflections of the Mirror

A Poem by Ambereen
"

Even the mirrors deceive .

"

I looked in the mirror

Hoping it would replicate

My real self

But all it revealed

Was The confident girl

Hidden behind fears and insecurities

It refused to show the misery

Hidden behind the forged grin

It showed the luminous eyes

Not the dreams that lied unfulfilled

It showed the long legs

But not their weariness

It showed the hands that rendered help

But not its eagerness to be lovingly held

Whoever said mirrors don't deceive ?

They to in the bogus reflections believed

The simplicity of words makes the piece even more powerful. i love reading it as i can really relate with the subject matter. In response to your note, i like that you did not follow any rhyme or meter, it makes it more genuine and unpretentious write.

This reminded me of a story I've read about the mirror always lying to whoever stands in front of it. Much like why it shows our left hand when we are raising ou right hand and so on.. I think you captured this in your poem as being a superficial character only seen from the outside while the truth is within the person. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks Kajal
Truth, it's the truth, though you know, sometimes seeing the real self gets you down more which leaves a contradictory thought. Sometimes it takes a special person to show it to you kindly. It is just how I feel. I don't know myself but I know who I'm not...

Sometimes what's in the mirror isn't what you wanted to see, whether it be out of insecurities or internal conflict, well done :)

mo problem Amb
This poem shows a reflection of deeper truth. A 3D of the soul in the 2D world of shallow relationships with ourselves and others.
