Mirror On The Wall (recommended)


Mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the fairest of them all?

*****
I look at you and I see
The person I never wanted to be
You come close and I smell
The sinful abyss in which you dwell

Your eyes they show a part of your soul
An empty carcass no longer whole
This place where your heart was supposed to be
You lost it the day you set your demon free

Look at you, you have come so far
The audacity to ask who you are
Dear mirror mirror on the wall
Who is the cruelest of them all?

*****
But oh dear mirror, is hope a crime
This longing for something that was never mine
What could I do when this world shred
To a million pieces as till my last I bled

I cannot see the person I have become
Let bygones be bygones, the past cannot be undone
This emptiness inside me this gaping hole
My insides they burn the skeleton of my soul

Look at me now, please stop this pain
Don’t let this strong façade go in vain
So tell me now, dear mirror on the wall
Who is the victim from amongst them all?

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
