Reflection

Reflection

A Poem by Euro
"

Who is that in the mirror?

"
REFLECTION
Crow's curls cascading to hide the monster
And exhibit expired beauty
Eyes of coal watching all
Turning endlessly and still unburnt
The corners of her trembling lips turn
In the direction where the shadows will illuminate the sun
Time and patience are her enemies when she starts run
As her legs of majesty are reduced to instruments of movement
Wishes of an unbreakable silver armor to disappear the
Soreness of her decapitated temple writhes in her mind

Her face is torn into bits and pieces of parchment,
With her watery signature to equilibrate her convex alignment
Her fingers scratch the facade of hypocrisy
The mask of happiness lies in ashes to the bag of secrets
Numbers mismatch her from the standards of the world
As she stands among a deplorable army of black doves

Never ending weight kills her under a back full of disgrace
A heart that will forever hold together the most beautiful
Doll the clowns will ever know
In the glass of growing pain, her most precious possession
Is nothing more than a silent torture
As she cries to me, to her reflection

Sylvia Plath has always been a favorite poet of mine. I think you have captured her use of mystery, darkness, the macabre and tragedy in this piece. And what a tragedy we have here.. a young, obviously beautiful woman, yet a darkling, cannot see any sense of beauty in her reflection. Your use of language in this piece reveals what she does see instead.. your metaphoric language is brilliantly done. I am very pleased with this piece and enjoyed reading it very much. Thank you for the journey.

I had to read this several times to figure out all the lines, which is great because that means there's deeper meaning that takes time to figure out, you sure created a splinter for the mind. The first two lines hooked me in. I love this poem, it felt as if I was reading a published piece. beggining to end, it was very well written, the imagery, the thought put into it, the ending...it's a really well put together piece.
Thank you.

Thank you for the nice review :)
I had to study Sylvia Plath poetry in College. I never like her desire to dance with death. Her life was sad and interesting. The poem felt like a secret. I like the feel of mystery and fear. You create many good visions with the poem.

I enjoyed this poem. I wish I could write with skill. Mystery and fear. You can. Thank you for the excellent poem.
