.... Chetty

(Seychelles)

Turn on the light


The mirror has a face
I wonder why she is so sad when she always had such a pretty face
The mirror has a face
Oh Cinderella, there no time for tears drying
Just turn the light on

The many cigarettes I have burned
The smokes don’t float me on the clouds
In the mirror I see my reflection

In the eyes there is a storm but the lightning does not strike through my iris
I am falling apart
I have a broken heart and the pain is searching for healing

Broken mirror on the wall
I am falling apart
Cinderella has no healing

Broken mirror is a warning that someone is inside my thoughts
The nights are stealing all my days
There must be something more meaningful
I want to hold the girl in the mirror
Saying oh Cinderella there is no time for tears dying
Just turn on the light to something beautiful

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
