A Poem by MandaBear

This is about a guy that is looking at himself in the mirror and not liking what he sees. Love or hate?

I look into your eyes and see pools of empty thought
Void of any emotions, any heart.
No breath to speak of
Is there any life in there?
I look into you heart and saw pure black
An emptiness so cold it could freeze hell.
Somewhere that should make you feel loved; 
Is just a place you go to die.
I look at your body and see a frail figure,
Beat down, broken, and bruised. 
Skin so pale and white, 
You could see the gloom of your heart.
Once a soul of many colors,
You gave a rainbow a run for its money.
Your soul shined brighter than the sun. 
Your heart had an infinite amount of love.
Looking for a escape 
A way to run from your self 
Run from the image the scares you so
Your afraid to come back to life
You are terrified of what you see 
You can't even look your self
You force yourself in the mirror 
You have to face what you fear the most
When looking in the mirror
I see eyes, heart and a body
A former shadow, 
Of the man I wish I could be.

So full of pathos, the intensity you put in this words are indescribable, I also enjoyed the fact the first 3 stanzas focuses on 3 different parts of a person, eyes for the first, heart for the second and body for the third.
Great job =D

I really liked it. This man looking at himself has a good personality, from what you've written here.

This is very interesting and deep, and I'm sure many people could relate these words to their own lives. You have great talent Amanda. Kudos

This is very deep, up until the last stance, I had the image of my mother in my mind. It sounded just like her, the terrible manipulating woman that she is.

Each of us look into the mirror and don't like what we see. I believe we gain wisdom when we learn to like the person looking back at you in the mirror. I like the strong statements and story in the poem. Thank you for the outstanding poem.
