Who is She that Stares Back at Me

I looked at my reflection the other day
I didn't know the girl who looked back at me
Her eyes were so cold, so distance
Her mind trapped waiting to be set free
 
Through her eyes I see she is so empty
Looks as if her soul is gone
Looks as if there is ice where her heart use to be
I can tell only tears fill her life and she is unhappy
 
I looked at my reflection the other day
When I looked at her she turned the other way. . . .

    AWE! Bravo! Such a great poem. Mirrors, like children and drunks, never lie. You capture a depressing moment with expertise. Good Job, Breana. Ruben.

    Breana, this is so profound! We often stare in the mirror and wonder what it is we are seeing. Very beautiful, Carolyn
