The Reflection

The Reflection short poem

Photo by jumfer

When in fragments I view myself
My judgement based on a trifling
Or not so trifling that has roused
A tremor of mistrust and misgiving
Momentarily rubbing my claim to
A greater understanding of life situation
Enough to cause a gaping hole in the
Fabric of self-esteem I have persevered to
Stitch to the requirement of my present day
My jaundiced view does not suffice to plug the hole
The stitch of sanity of another works better to mend
The gap that threatens to unravel the fabric

Eyes as bright as northern star Smiling, trying to hide the deepest scar A smile so pure and simple As I drew nearer, could it be possible I looked closer and found myself in horror Was that me, the girl
