Mirrors - Poem by Prachi Gogte

You. I. You & I, mirrors looking for ourselves in each others eyes
Passing life shoving moments images days years hunting voraciously
Wading through tides of patience and those of impatience
Hiding that hunger to protect our identity from mockery, from judgement
Acting strong stoic appearing satisfied
I am there but am I really
Do I even exist till you witness my identity

They see me the whole world does and I am the sky
Cloudy at times and clear at others
But lucid as it may appear even a clear blue sky is only an illusion
Hiding itself the loneliness the heat and fire of its stars from judging eyes
I wonder, are you ready to wait for the day to end
For I know the day is long
But if you wait if you could brave these tides of patience and impatience
That swim through your heart making eddies of pain
if you could just wait for the world to go to sleep
You will find me
Waiting for you
You. I. You & I, mirrors; looking for ourselves in each other's eyes

    mirrors are eyes which see outside tokens of success..only if they could explore the inside-inside is so always complex to analyse that a mirror in variations of glass mocks at life-then one has to introspect...thought provoking piece again (Report) Reply
