Reflection

I open my eyes with a yawn,
From a complete resonant sleep,
With the birds chirping outside,
And the sun yet to fully dawn.

What i see ahead is shocking,
There is nothing in my room at all,
But only a single clear mirror,
Right infront of me on an invisible wall.
Petrified,i still strengthen myself,
To get up and take a peak,
At the mirror in the dark,
To find the answers that i seek.

Its such a sigh of relief!
I see my own image,
Just a normal phenomena,
Set-up by the nature’s stage.
Hold on for a second!
I am only wearing shorts!
How come the image is fully dressed?
I am flabbergasted with distraught!

A dapper suit, just fine black,
With a white shirt tucked inside,
The image turned and looked at me,
My brows are now sweating side by side.
Yet it was me and still not myself,
What in the world am i speaking?
The “me” turned and smiled,
Seriously i must be dreaming!

“How are you? Its been a long time.”
The “shape” boldly asked,
I stammered to even push the words,
“I am fine, but what are you may i ask?”
“I am YOU, or one of the many you”
At this answer i lost my mind,
“Many me? Just kill me if you are satan!”
I said angrily as my teeth’s grined.

“You have many forms inside you,
Some you choose not to be,
I am one of them you lost,
On the way to become the other “me”.
Perplexed with emotions, my heartbeats rised,
It came closer to the mirror, “Its ‘you’ i despise”,
“Get up&get out of this depressed,sad life,”
“Forget your wrists&your attempts to take your life!”
“You should be ME, the best you are!”
“The person you were and made it this far!”

It reached out to me from inside the mirror,
Pulling my collar with its firm hands,
Screaming&shouting, i was pleading for mercy,
Its force was too much for me and too grand.

All of a sudden i found myself awake again,
From this terrible nightmare that i had just seen,
With a heartbreaking letter by my side,
That she was no longer with me,
Thats not the end, suddenly i realized,
The world is much more to be discovered,
Even a frightening nightmare can do wonders,
The reflection in it was the “True ‘ME’ i uncovered.

This is how love marriages fail.. they marry n then one of them soon realize that it was mere attraction which they named as so called love.

Just like how painful childbirth is and yet how beautiful it is! Love and pain go hand in hand and not everyone has to face pain, sometimes, the journey isnt complete without it. Warm wishes Felix.

Not all humans are alike. Sometimes a person is not lucky enough to find love in the right moment of time. Emotions often give way to very unexpected reactions out of people. Just like all the guys aren’t looking for fun and actually support the #MeToo movement, likewise not all girls are two faced and unloving. I hope you find the love of your life soon. Thanks for reading. Much love-Insane Writer.
