A Mirror Is A Liar Too - Poem by Ina SchrodersZeeders

How can I see myself in you

When you reflect my pain but not my soul

Am I to play another part or role

Than to be myself and true?

What can reflections really do

But show the outside of the complex whole

And not the depth, the relief that you stole

A mirror is a liar too

There might be more than what you see

So much is covered by what was

Not to be shown by just some glass

Reflections don’t show the real me

So let this vanity just pass

As you are not my looking-glass

    I love this. Even through a mirror, there'd be wonderful depth to this. (Report) Reply
