cracked mirror


Reflect upon my face,
broken in a mirror,
tiny millions of me,
all with the same expression.

Reflect upon my fear,
that rips a bloody pathway,
across this aching heart,
left somehow forgotten. 

Reflect a light eternal,
as it questions tomorrow,
uncertain as usual,
all faces have their sadness.

  1. What really makes this poem work, for me, is the last line. A little different rhythm than the rest and I think that transition flows very well. “Tiny millions of me” works really well too – you could have been locked into a cliche’ way of referencing the reflections but this gives them new life in its simplicity… you said it in a way I wouldn’t have thought to say it. Very good.

  2. Thanks I was having a rather sad moment looking at me in the mirror. I think that last line is the most significant for me too.
