I see your reflection
you're sitting on the floor
all curled up in the corner
behind the bathroom door
I hear short, soft sobs
while you look into my eyes
in me you see the pain
that caused yourself to cry
you reach for a tissue
and as do I
and while you bring it to your face
I too, bring one to mine.
I don't quite feel the hurt
that you are going through
but I sympathize your pain
and so I cry for you.
I'm the only one you talk to
you think no one else will care
this world is dark and cold,
lonely and unfair.
I'm your one and only friend
and that I'll always be
and I'll never turn my back on you
'till you turn yours on me.

    everyone on soup is into mirrors this month. Hopefully, not literally...including me. I wrote "Behind the Silvered Galss" I like your verse better! Light & Love

    A true friendship can mean the world to someone who is hurting. Nicely said here in this poem. ~ Carrie
