Take A Look In The Mirror - Poem by Aabid Masroor

Take a look in the mirror
Into your memories, Into your thoughts
Into your present, Into your past
Somehow I am there awake
Forgotten-But you know him well
As moon knows to gloom
As spring knows to bloom

Take a look in the mirror
For your beauty to make
Eyes and brows and arrows
And smile-would had took him long
I know not-All that I know her voice
As smiling water falling down
As crystal stream wearing crown

Take a look in the mirror
Your past is but a silver coating
Painted to the same mirror
Reflecting me in front of
Break it or lash it, pieces will reflect but me
As desolation of rainbow
As sunrays behind the shadow

Take a look in the mirror
And feel the same last rainfall
Out me and you and you and me
Thunders and showers that our canopy
Whenever it is rainfall, your eyes, tears will fall
As clouds bring to fading flower
As last spoken words of forgotten lover

Take a look in the mirror
In cold shiver winter nights
Somehow I am there awake and alive and
Take a look into the mirror
In the summer colourful days-I am there
As warm days are long
As birds singing a lovesong

    The subject of this poem is advising the object to consider his/her reflection, but there is obviously a connection here between the subject and the object of the poem, which creates a fascinating duality 'mirroring' the connection between the object and his/her reflection. We are left to contemplate and fill in the blanks between the stanzas regarding the relationship while contemplating the intriguing concept of the reflection of a human soul allegorized by the reflection of an image. Nicely done, good poet. (Report) Reply

    And feel the same last rainfall
    Out me and you and you and me
    Thunders and showers that our canopy
    Whenever it is rainfall, your eyes, tears will fall
    As clouds bring to fading flower
    As last spoken words of forgotten lover

    Nice and lovely way of appreciation of memories.
    Thanks.

    Beautiful poem. Mirror reflects who we are and within us there's a mirror that we rarely look at which reflect our true nature. (Report) Reply

    Great work..... a full 10++++++ Reminds me of the song MORROR TO MIRROR popularized by AMERICA:

    Mirror To Mirror

    I haven't seen forever
    Don't even know her name
    I call on dreams and other schemes
    To try and win that game

    Now that it's over, darling
    Look into my eyes
    Seein' your own reflection
    Much to your surprise

    We're seein' mirror to mirror
    Face to face
    We look but we cannot see
    Mirror to mirror
    Seems to trace
    What happened to you and me

    And though we tried in earnest
    The distant silence yells
    We call on wings and other things
    To try and break that spell

    Now that it's over, darling
    Truth in the common cause
    We stare at our own indifference
    By seeing the other's flaws

    We're seein' mirror to mirror
    Face to face
    We look but we cannot see
    Mirror to mirror
    Seems to trace
    What happened to you and me

    Oh, mirror to mirror, mirror to mirror
    Mirror to mirror, what's come over me

    As we look inside, there's nowhere to turn
    There's nowhere to hide

    Now that it's over, darling
    Look into my eyes
    Seein' your own reflection
    Much to your surprise

    We're seein' mirror to mirror
    Face to face
    We look but we cannot see
    Mirror to mirror
    Seems to trace
    What happened to you and me

    Oh, mirror to mirror, mirror to mirror
    Mirror to mirror, what's come over me
    Mirror to mirror, mirror to mirror
    Mirror to mirror, what's come over me

    Human nature is analogical to various seasons as they represent different moods of nature. Thanks..... 'Whenever it is rainfall, your eyes, tears will fall'. (Report) Reply
