The Old Mirror - Poem by Nikki Addleton

I look in the mirror tainted and old
What do i see? ?
I see this woman staring back at me
She does'nt speak, she does'nt smile
She looks lost with a frown

I look in the mirror is it something from the 50's?
What do i see? ?
I see this man staring back at me
He does'nt wave he does'nt nod
He stands and stares with a glare

I look in the mirror the frame varnished dark
What do i see? ?
I see this girl staring back at me
She does'nt laugh or d a cheeky face
She turns away and begins to cry

I look in the mirror round and smoke stained
What do i see? ?
I see this boy staring back at me
Glasses and combed over hair

I wonder who they are
the people in the old mirror
