An Antique Beauty - Poem by Marieta Maglas

This antique mirror boosts no confidence. The concave
reveals its magic tricks with an incurvate
red surface. Some hair blending
braids are there to fancify some things,
your swimmers strap underwear
and her open bust body underwear slips.

‘Tis a new style.

I feel anguish, when I touch
the pull locks. The picture
of an antique statue is hidden between
all those things. She enters
the mirror to kiss you
every time you look at it. Like jelly candies
are her lipsticks on that silver, but
they have a different taste. For me,

they look like isoquants,
or like indifference curves. I want
to leave you. What do you think?

When I wash it, the water that drips
from the mirror is like the crimson blood. Scary
optical illusions split the reality
into two variants through my woe
to create a much looser and less direct relationship
between us than ever. You live for

your comfort and versatility. You cannot change it.

    I can read in the lines the pain and hurt of a broken trust, causing bitterness, spoiling the uniqueness. Staying any longer in such situation may seem an approach that is least hard on ourselves, but quite often it just causes cumulative pain, that worsens with time. Sometimes it is better to start anew early. Positive thinking may really help in meeting the right partner.
    I may have it completely wrong, Marieta, my interpretation may be completely out but these were the feelings and thoughts that the poem provoked in me. I think it is a wonderful write with the use of strong images; the reader cannot but being moved deeply after reading it. (Report) Reply

    Dark poetry, images and emotions, perhaps just a reflection away. (Report) Reply
