Mirror Mirror

Mirror mirror on the wall
Who will rise?
Who will fall?

Who will admire your symmetrical shape?
A super hero without a cape

Light reflects in all you are to be
Hold no grudges
The guilty and the free

We never look to the edges of the frame
The intricacy missed
Such a shame

We always seem so different
Is it a distorted view?
Just a mirage
Of metal and glue

Is it shiny and smooth one side?
Rough and dark the other?

Abandoned in dust
Who will discover?

About markious72

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)

    I can totally relate to this. There have been times when I’ve peered into the mirror & didn’t recognise myself I,…………am I the reflection of a illusion – I don’t actually exist
