Reflection long poem

Photo by Malcolm Carlaw

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 in the mirror?
Yes! I saw my own reflection
A girl withholding all the emotions.
I’m staring at myself in full bloom
But she stares back like a doomed
A cold glance drawing from the past
I thought happiness won’t end and last.

This story of my life isn’t unique
But have you ever tried walking on a stick?
I always thought life was just a piece of cake
But I find it hard to deal with someone who is fake.
I was once a casual girl and easygoing
And of course people find my character- very charming
I met a guy whom I thought attractive
But then he just wants my heart being captive
In his winter heart so cold, I can’t withstand it
So I breathe up for air, I fought before I would suffocate.

As I recall all the flashbacks of my past
I have realized this would be the last
Enough of being drowned to the forgotten cast
Don’t blame me for giving some guy’s mistrust.
I looked away as the reflections crowded on my emptiness
I closed my eyes as I have heard the screaming of regrets
I let myself drown in every drop of my tear
Trusting again is my greatest fear.

Looking at my reflection I see a shadow of the girl I used to be. Someone who was once so carefree has turned out to be, one who is broken infinitely. Someone who once was so strong. She is searching
