A Poem by MIngram

I can see through you like a mirror
But I’d rather be your pawn
Sliding dutifully across the board
Waiting-to be inevitably surrendered

I can see through you like a mirror 
But I’d rather keep my dignity
Guiltlessly playing your hand
And playing mine at the same time 

I can see through you like a mirror 
My gaze lingering around the eyes of a mirage
I can stand and stare,
But I’d rather play your addictive game

Because we both know
Reflections only appear after the steam goes away
Only to re-appear,
After the hot rush of the faucet

I love that you used a mirror as a comparison :) It made it sound very cool. This was well written, the repetition was used well, and you just did an overall good job. You're a good writer

Very deep and strong. I love the way you used a mirror as your simile...and your wording is strong.
