Breaking The Medicine Mirror

Poem By Melissa Schreuder

She walks through the rain...
she walks through her door...
she sets her bag down...
walks to her bathroom...
she looks at her self in the medicine
cabinet mirror,
she sees a pail brown eyed brunet,
she balls up her hands and swings at the mirror
and hits it as hard as she could,
blood and glass every where,
she screams with pain,
the pain of loneliness and sadness and hate in her self.

Comments about Breaking The Medicine Mirror

I love the emotion in this poem. I can really feel the pain you are describing.
penning a sequence of self-defeating behavior followed by the advocacy of reminder....reminding me of why I wrote my poem 'Veracity'

I Hate (Pleas Read And Vote! ! !)

I hate the way you make me feel,
I hate that you think you can read my mind,
I hate crying over you,
I hate that you say you care but you don't,

A Home?

My home is not a home,
not a place to call my own,
not a place where I can sleep peacefully,
not a place where I can sing or dance about it.


Tears fall down her face,
her heart breaking in to a million pieces.
She breaks down no one knows why.
then she screams 'TELL ME YOU LOVE ME! ',


Isabella is a little girl,
a zebra,

All Of Him

His eyes unleashes the beautiful
metamorphic butterfly's inside my stomach,
his smile sets my hart on fire, roaring hot flames,
his touch sends an earthquake of chills,

A New Life

She packs her bag and goes out in the
Morning sun she gets in the cab,
She drives away from her old life
And drives heads for a new.
