***looking Glass***

Poem By Kaspa Richards

I can’t bear to stare into a looking glass
For I see my reflection thus I see my past
I see what I am and I see I won’t last
I see my failures and what holds me back
I see the skills of relationship I lack
I can’t bear to stare into a looking glass
For I fear the mirror world and the spells it casts
On my mind and on yours too
Is what you see a true reflection of you?
I don’t think it is and I know it isn’t with me
But the looking glass attacks with glee
Yeah I see my smile but my mouth hasn’t moved
The looking glass is laughing and mocking my mood
So I don’t look into the looking glass as I don’t like what I see
And what I see is me loosing my grip on reality

Nice poem. It's very true. Sometimes we can be our worst enemy and others our strongest advocate. The past can haunt you if you let it. Keep of the good work. Feel free to read some of my poems: http: //www.poemhunter.com/matthew-de-gasperi/
Yeah. It reminds me of the movie 'Mirrors'. This poem's cool.
