The Face In The Mirror


Look through my eyes and tell me who you see in the mirror?
You see a girl oh so bright, oh so sweet and oh so full of life?
But is that really me?
All I see is a broken faith, a heart torn apart and a false lie of a life
Don't you see the real me?
I can't escape myself, I'm driving myself insane with all these thoughts inside my mind
How can you see me but not my soul?
Every time I look into that mirror I look away in fright of what faces me
I can't find myself, where am I?
Or better yet who am I? Where did I lose myself? When did I forget who I was?
It's been so long, so many years past I can't remember.
All I know is that the face staring back at me in the mirror isn't me.

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
