The Mirror Lies Poem by Lodigiana Poetess

The Mirror Lies

Rating: 5.0

The mirror lies, can't empathise
and never will apologise
for what you hide behind your eyes,
The truth that knows no compromise.
And yes you know
within those eyes,
the mirror always,
always lies

The mirror sees just what you show.
It can't reflect things that you know
you try to hide,
and keep inside,
the images that you despise
that's why we know,
the mirror lies

It never sees that secret smile
you only use once in a while,
or how a lonely tear will fall
when friends and kids forget to call.
It can't reflect what's in your soul,
those things that make you
lose control

It only shows a part of you,
the part that isn't really true,
The rest is just seen through a veil
It's all economies of scale.
The subterfuge is all skin deep,
with lies enough
to make you weep

Don't trust that mirror of deceit,
one you see there, you'll never meet.
It's just a perfect picture see
and not at all like you and me..
But maybe lies
are what we need,
to help us constantly mislead

So lie to me my mirrored friend
We're allies to the very end.
My secrets I will keep with me
and you will only let them see,
the side of me, they think my best,
that darkest side..
no one else guessed….
