Cold and smooth is the surface of glass, but it doesn't have a color,
and it hides the naked truth unlike any other

You look so innocent in the truth, but it really, truly lies,
'cause the person that it sees right now hardly can comply

The glowing glass holds the image of you, but all it sees is perfection
you like to tease it is the truth, though it is only your reflection

Blinded by beauty is the mirror to only notice features
it compares you to the rest, lower than a creature

It can't see your pain inside, or understand your feelings
and you know as you move on, it's yourself you're slowly killing

You let out a cry of pain as you pound your fist into the glass
then you fall onto your knees and hope those feelings swiftly pass

The mirror breaks and is left confused as it lays there shattered
blood drips down your raw hand and your breathing slowly patterns

Now the mirror is just like you, it's broken and a mess
and you can't repair the pieces which are lower than they are less

Though as you stare into the shards the truth is what you see
pieces shattered of yourself, just ruined quality

The mirror was a sneaky tool to prevaricate the void
something that you can't escape and one you can't avoid

Swindler, spurious, and vague, it rests in stagnation
and as you slowly walk away you pretend it was your imagination


When I was in high school I use to read a lot of poems about identity and how people would try and figure out who they actually were. There were some about dolls and comparing them to objects and then a few I read about mirrors, but none of them in my opinion caught the feeling I wanted to capture. This poem is quite messy, but regardless I still like it. :)

I am glad I attempted to write it anyway. xD It didn't take me too long. I was lazy after work and decided to scribble down some ideas caught up inside my head.

Anyway, I hope you guys like it. =D

...I'm so jealous... T~T I wish I could write as good as you! I love it! It's great! You're flow is great, but rough in some places. Work on your grammar a bit, and your spelling is amazing! The idea behind the poem is beautiful and sadly true. Melancholy. I'm having trouble explaining it, but it's great. :) Keep up the great work!

I have nothing to say... Do you want me to spam to you that you are an amazing writer and how I enjoy your work and how I'm speechless everytime, because of your genius, and how everytime you touch my little heart in any way you choose and cetera and cetera... Nahh, I won't spam you! It's to much reading... Laziness kills us all (-_-)zZZ
