Mirror

sunset

Reflecting what happened, my image
My eyes piercing my own
Matching my glance, my thoughts
Making all of it known

How long I could stare
Twilight coming away
Till I saw what I couldn’t
From what happened that day

Weighing clearly, your image
Reflected by a chance
What I knew now as illusion
Keeping my fitful trance

I measure my price
My mirror withholding no lie
I miss those things we did
My heart it wants to die

I can’t keep looking
When the reflection stays
Double outlines of truth
Is why I’m kept agaze

Beating pulses of my memory
When I feel too much
Point of no return
But then I feel your touch

Your hand upon my shoulder
Into a dream I stray
Reflections in your eyes
You’re not really leaving today

Fleeting image in the mirror
Are you ever real?
I move on into the night
For one my memories to steal

    Glad to see you’re writing poetry again. Fall begets memories, which beget the feelings that go with them. For those like us, poetry abounds.

    I think you’re right, Nora, days are shorter, more vampire darkness for me…I can even remember the last time I’ve celebrated a holiday.

    Nice seeing from you. I have a few posts on deck but no time rarely nowadays…I hope things are well for you…
