Look Into The Mirror


Look into the mirror and what do you see?
Strong, fierce queen, would you be jealous of me?!
Look into the mirror and what do I see?
Chosen angles, filter and enhance,
Who would ever give me a second glance.
Our look in the mirror, views differ we see,
Don’t judge by a cover, look inside who we be.


Snowflakes are like people,all indiviually different but cold in the same way
And like us humans when they feel warmth, they melt, and become vunerable that day
Everyone has days painted with grey, but we fight to impress our Van Gogh and hope the blue will stay.


This is beautiful x


Looking at me now I can see my past. Damn, I look just like my dad. Light it up, that's smoke and mirrors. I even look good in the broken mirror. I make my mama smile, that's a blessing. I see the change, I see the message, and no message coulda been any clearer. So I'm starting with the Woman in the....


Looking in the mirror, through my eyes, to the soul
My soul is beautiful


Age has took its toll


Looking in the mirror, through my eyes, to the soul
My soul is beautiful


I don't know what perfection is meant to be,
All I ever hear is I should just 'be me',
But I am not permeable,
As much as I long to be


Man in the mirror? I dare not look! When was it last we stared at each other? Full of fright I fear to see, he that might be looking back at me. So I know him not, avoid him in every reflection. Only my shadowy figure I am glad, all else just feels too bad!
The mirror within is all that I care to see, even this is marred with struggle and strife. All I want is to simply 'be', if only the mirror of my mind would reflect more quietly and leave me in peace!

Myself I see mirrored in the eyes of the angel.
I'm scared as I cant tell if I'm seeing myself or its looking at me.
I cry out,
Why wont you help me.
From its lips it whispers unto me.
Only the reflection you see has the power to heal.


I don't know what perfection is meant to be,
All I ever hear is I should just 'be me',
But I am not permeable,
As much as I long to be


I'm a perfect imperfection
My craft has been perfected
I just need affection
Emotionally, Imma introvert but it comes off as aggression
No one understand me and everybody can't be slow
It's refreshing to find someone who thinks like me so I can't be wrong


Looking in the mirror,
I see you staring back at me.
Painted tired face,
Screaming, 'Make me free!'
Corner of the mirror
Wing''d creature's dulcid call.
I reach a leap of faith to touch it,
Through the glass I start to fall!


DISTORTING MIRRORS ~ BRIANSODES !

MIRROR ~ MIRROR on the WALL
Can you make me six foot tall ?
MIRROR ~ MIRROR on the BAFF
Make me bigger so the girls won't laff !
MIRROR ~ MIRROR in the LOBBY
Make me as handsome as my Brother NOBBY
MIRROR ~ MIRROR in the MALL
Make me attractive to my chosen GALL
MIRROR ~ MIRROR All I plead
Is to look like a Flower ~ and not a WEED !

    Sorry Maxine, did not see your friend request nor your poem in time to contribute.

    Looks like you all did a great job though. Maybe I'll catch the next one.

    Looking in the mirror, through my eyes, to the soul

    I love the positivity of these pieces in particular. It seems the poem over-all takes a fatal turn after this and the poem becomes heavier with sadness. Not bad to express sadness, not at all - I just wrote a poem about being angry, and anger is an intense form of sadness - but it's difficult within fusion poems to express the same thing as the next person.

    But that in itself is beautiful, too - having multiple outlets and energies. Ultimately everything that does not cause pain (it can express pain) is beautiful.

    Thank you so much for your comment, you can always add your addition in the comments. Would love to see your creative spin on the poem, what energy can you bring to it? 😀

    My eyes fixated, a rustic mirror
    Tears in her eyes, she looks at mine
    The fine print reads so clearly:
    "Dearly beloved, I am home"
    This separation between the oceans
    Causes me to simply see her,
    Feel her, know her, even hear her
    Through the reconstructed mirror
    In our mutual soul.

    A lucky Penny to make me whole.
