Reflection - Poem by Ernesto Castillo
Give me all your kisses, stealing you to the end, I won’t tell your boyfriend
Give me all your courage, and I’ll swear I’ll bet my life, if not you can hold this knife
Disobey the silence, and I swear I’ll miss you again, I’m counting to ten
Look at your reflection, and tell me what you see, is this how you wanted to be?
I want to tell you who I love, but its better being safe, I have some feelings to erase
I wish that you could be a lie, but you luckily a fake, how much am I supposed to take?
Knowing your only family, would linger here and die. What a shame they didn’t try
But when I look into your eyes, I just stared for a sign, but all I saw were mine
Hang me to the ceiling, and I swear I’ll tell the truth, or I’ll let you pull my tooth
Show me you have feelings, by crying as you scream, to everyone your dream
Can you make a mural, of what is in your mind, I promise you’ll find
All my hidden secrets that I kept from you you know there’s nothing I can do
Hey did you ever tell this boy, he was treated like a toy, didn’t know this love wasn’t real
Now I think he has gone insane, figuring out your old game, he’s making such a deal
And now he’s trying to escape, I didn’t know that you could rape, peoples unresurected brains
Why did you ever let him go? Did you ever start to show, the love and all the pains?
Disobey the silence, and I swear I’ll call your name, or you’ll just die in shame
