Pain and Ecstasy

Like in the mirror hanging upon the bathroom wall
Shattered dreams this of my image i constantly fall.

Yet it is you that in this life i had to become
A love i thought true to that which i succumb.

To take in reality portrayed like a summer’s breeze
Yet my life in truth full of lies pain ne’er at ease.

But now upon you my dream i honour you so
You were sent to me anew to you everything i owe.

    Great poem and good use of couplet format. Often people write couplets that are forced.. this feels genuine.

    Hi Harry, I like the imagery that you have created with the mirror and self. This is a beautiful reflective peice.

    Love means pains but also the satisfaction (at least partial) of our dreams. But it is the only thing we really owe.

    Mirror, mirror on the wall, who else will answer if I call. A game of tag within myself. I'm all grown up, but on the shelf. If I should die before I wake. Please tell me it wasn't just a mistake. Thanks for stopping by Harry. Glad somebody is reading Nobody Died. :)
