Mirror-image



my mirror never did show
the me I so desperately wished to be
but the ghost of a girl I once thought I knew
pale
with raven-dark hair
and eyes staring into the hollow of my soul
brooding

while others ~ with rosy cheeks and golden hair
so fair
't was so unfair
smiled always ~ ever so brightly
and strode always ~ ever so lightly

what mistake made me ~ what fault in my stars
what reason for this treason

my mind raging against the light of day
hiding away my heart in the night
~ broken at the beginning
~misshapen from the start

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night

casting my eyes to ground
I find our morning shadows fading
dark clouds have gathered to shade our sun
we own our separate thoughts
both wrought with guilt

I love you
still
but my heart beats out of sync

let the rain pour down
I am now ready to drown
