Mirror

A Poem by A. V. Madison
"

Short but meaningful

"
You keep thinking
and thinking
until you're all 
thought out
is that inducing 
insanity
or is that inducing
strife

You don't sleep
you don't eat
you don't 
smile
you still weep
put on a show
pretty glow
fluttering lights
I see you, 
you know. 

The girl behind 
the mask
the frown
behind the
laugh
oh yes, 
I've seen you
before, 
in a place
called
the mirror.

Me thinks it all depends on the type of the mirror and it's quality of craftsmanship. For some mirrors never quite reveal everything and some warp our perceptions what peers into it's lucid surface. Some mirrors can make you laugh, while other's make you think. So over all I believe that mirrors are only about as accurate as a tarot card reading, which only can give you insight into the very moment you look and never further down the highway.

Great Ink! It's a good musing piece.

I HATE giving advice because it all depends upon the reaction of the recipient....I like this but I feel that as you have entitled it THE MIRROR....you do not need to mention THE MIRROR in the actual piece..it sort of over explains...I think it would be far better to end with;
I'VE SEEN YOU BEFORE
AND WILL SEE YOU AGAIN

or something like that..THANKS

Maddie - to see your own mask for what it is, is τђє first step to removing it. I lived with my masks for fifty years an sometime I still whip out the one marked 'normal' to hide behind. Great poem - showing sensitivity and depth. Thank you for sharing.
