Man Alone

Written by: Louise Bogan | Biography
 | Quotes (7) |
 It is yourself you seek
In a long rage,
Scanning through light and darkness
Mirrors, the page,

Where should reflected be
Those eyes and that thick hair,
That passionate look, that laughter.
You should appear Within the book, or doubled, Freed, in the silvered glass; Into all other bodies Yourself should pass.
The glass does not dissolve; Like walls the mirrors stand; The printed page gives back Words by another hand.
And your infatuate eye Meets not itself below; Strangers lie in your arms As I lie now.
