Mirror- A dark Poem about adolescent self-esteem

Updated on March 2, 2013

Title: MIrror

Title: Mirror

Every time I look in the mirror
I'm reminded about the paths I take
The road I met with an empty plate
And a dream that drifted away like a summer fog
The makeup has dripped straight off my face
And I can't imagine a single other place
That would let me see myself the same
So I guess it's goodbye, please know I tried

I can't seem to cut deep enough
I try to not breathe, but it's all a bluff
And as much as I want to let go
I care just enough to cry tomorrow
The shattered glass reminds me of my life
Jagged choices and roads that lead to a knife
And a patch of very real scars
That help define me, as the broken wish on a star

It seems like every night I'm at this window
Staring at the same street, from the same eyes
Focusing on the same words, that trace the same lies
And still I'm breathing still
On a reach of reminder that I can be somebody
But the blocks and the strains are enough to blind
Blind me from anything I could find
That could shed a light to where I should be

So hold out a lamp, spare a guide
Pull me from the broken side
Cause I need a taste of purity before this sets in
Cause the pain is beginning to taste too familiar
And I think I'm about to break
So feel a fragile hand, a fragile mind
Take a step that's worth the climb
Cause I don't want to view this alone anymore
And I need something to lean on
This is going to be one hell of a fall
