Mirror - Poem by Merina Dahal

I'm no more myself
I feel I'm like a puppet
I feel I'm like a statue
Which no longer breathe and speak

People say I'm like a mirror
Well polished and reflect light
Who cares the shadow part of it
Where I dream and feel things

How can they be so judgemental?
They say me they know be better than none
By the way I move and dress up
By the way I cook and speak up

Everybody has their enemy
My enemy is my mirror
The way it set things for me
The way it leads me

People say I'm like a mirror
Just like a mirror
With no thoughts and existence
Just like a mirror which shatter into pieces when it breaks
And in those broken pieces I lost me and my dreams

    Wonderful of wonderful, if director Andrei Tarkovsky would read your this poem, sure, his movie 'The mirror' would be more interesting. (Report) Reply
