Mirror Man - Poem by Shelley Buffitt

Who are you?
Who am I?
Closer look
I recognize
You in me
Me in you
Deeper seeds
increased by two

The better part
Of all that's us
Inside of me
Inside of you
Sharing thoughts
In point of view
Blending colour
of visual hue

Mirror Man
Do you see
You are all
that I can be
Mirror Man
I face the truth
Every time
I look at you
I now see
What you believe
You're the best
that's part of me

Compromised, Epitomized
Paralleled and Equalized,
Beauty lies
In duel abide

Yet time was loose
when spun to choose
I winked back
at opened books
like fickle stares in
longing looks

Suddenly
you appeared.
You said again
as you believed
Most of You
is most of Me.

So I concede
that what you said
I now believe.

Faded and glowing
Shaded and growing
Crying and smiling
Living and dying

Mirror Man
Do you see
You are all
that I can be
Mirror Man
I face the truth
Every time
I look at you

Now I see
What you believe..
You are the best
that's part of me.
